For me, The reason I use IDE is due to it's debugger as I learnt to depend on it due to visual studio's awesome debugger.
Thus despite I use pycharm on a daily basis I always uses the debugger extensively when I encounter a problem in my code.
We should consider using the debugger more, you're right.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
