I wasn't being critical of the previous response. I just pointed out that in this context there's another approach that doesn't require console.log; that is certainly quicker; and that also illustrates a really useful debugging tool.
You however are adding nothing to the conversation...

I didn't say you were, but you're wrong when you say it's quicker. Depending on skill level, it could take a lot longer.

Even with a high skill level, sometimes a quick console.log is best.

I think you need to calm yourself down.

ROFL. You're being utterly pedantic. That's like saying a hand drill is quicker for someone who doesn't know how to use an electric drill. In the context described - i.e. debugging network requests - the network tab will always be the quickest way to see the result of a failed response.

As I said: I added this as a potentially useful avenue of learning (which may indeed be slower for those unfamiliar with the browser debugger; but will save them a lot of key-strokes in the long run). I don't see what you are adding to this conversation: are you saying we shouldn't suggest better solutions when they are available?

And it's going to take more than a couple of passive/aggressive comments to bring me out of my calm zone :D
