We definitely did read it differently. I was explicitly
saying that I don't use the debugger for debugging, and in
response to that tye
answered saying that he thought that
people don't use it because of not wanting to take time to
learn to use the debugger. He went on to tell me to use
one the next time I need to debug. Despite the fact that I
am saying that my not using one is intentional.
I read that as his not paying attention to what I said (the
fact that I am making an intentional choice) and assuming
that if I am exposed to the joys of debuggers then I (being
a presumably sane human being) will convert.
That is what I reacted to, and I don't think that I reacted
particularly unreasonably to it.
