Comment(by Zaphod0414):

 The debug log contains a bit too much personal information for me to share
 the whole thing with you.  It also contains too much to edit out.  If you
 can identify a specific section of information you're looking for, I'll do
 my best to provide it.  I understand the importance of thorough logging,
 but the information that your logger gathers is not appropriate for
 distribution.  It's not just my own security I'm protecting, but the
 personal information of those on my contact list that should never have
 made it into the log in the first place.  You should rethink advising
 people to share this information with you - it's not really ethical to do
 so.  A debug log that you intend to collect for troubleshooting should
 contain only technical information - not personal data (even if that
 personal data might be relevant and/or helpful).
