There's times I use the debugger and times I just print to the console. It really, really depends on the situation. Not to mention setting the logging level to DEBUG is basically the same as just a bunch of printfs and it's many times the best way to debug issues in production.

To say printf is not a "quality debugging technique" is just false.
