Carl Eugen, If you're going to demand this information, you need to be prepared to do a lot of work helping people to get it. The ability to do these things is not common among computer users.
If you are not willing to do that, people can very reasonably assume that you are deliberately putting up barriers to bug reports. This would be very odd behaviour, as most software engineers are very keen to know where the problems in their software are, but that's your prerogative.
Normally, the software engineer would request details of the situation which caused the crash and try to recreate it so that it can be investigated. That's a completely normal part of the job of a software engineer.
If you don't want to be involved in that work, it's probably a good idea to avoid software engineering, because that's what the job involves.
