Here's a question that I'd really like to stir up some talk/comments/feedback.
Should one go live with a .NET (in this case ASP.NET) app compiled as DEBUG? Some folks have claimed that whatever speed you might gain is pale compared to the usefulness of the occasional late night production debugging session. A RELEASE build strips out Debug.Write calls, etc., but we use Log4net exclusively, so that doesn't affect us.
Thoughts and comments, oh wise bloggers? Is this clever, controversial, or stupid?
