They have totally swung and missed testing several well regarded lenses in the past, they have zero credibility with me. Same with DXO yet people seem convinced by all the fancy charts and 3D graphs these people know what they are doing. I've seen sample shots from both these sites that were clearly OOF as "examples" of the performance one can expect. Just because "many" people value their opinion, many also laugh at them

And on the "How a lens renders other than strict 'testing'", is WAY more important IMHO than "sharpness". There are plenty of very sharp lenses I wouldn't own on a bet. It's why testing like they and a couple of the other "ultra techy" sites do is almost pointless to a photographer.
