enabled by default because here at firestorm we only believe in spamming the customer with completely utterly worthless texts

I've never altered my settings here, but found that mine was already set to True. That rather suggests that the default is actually True, not False as suggested by you.

A good number of people like to live on the edge of their seat, waiting for that next "1 Linden 1 Hour" offer to go live (or for a whole host of similar things that would need a speedy response). This is going to be very much a question of individual choice, and certainly does not justify being a blanket recommendation.

 

Nevertheless, thanks for this useful information. Many people, myself included, will have no idea that there are choices for these.

Bonus: The Objects&Scripts Tab.

So, no need whatsoever to be going into the Debug settings or to pretend these settings are hidden at all.
