Don't disable Minecraft debug.log

Please do not disable the creation of the debug.log file or atleast give us the option to enable it.

Almost every time someone reports an issue to the author(s) of a mod or modloader the debug.log file will be requested as it contains a lot of information that is not contained in the latest.log. We currently have to instruct people how to start their modpack from a vanilla launcher profile that is created manually, which completely defeats the purpose of the CurseForge client.

    For the record, there is now an option under Minecraft settings to enable the debug log. But I still agree that this should not be disabled by default, it's just confusing that the behavior differs from any other installation of forge. Silently modifying default behavior isn't cool.

Hold on!
