What information should I hide when posting terminal command returns?

Linux users rely on community support. Often asked to post some command line returns they copy-paste the returns without question. I do the same. The Fedora ABRT tool got me thinking (it warns about debug logs containing sensitive security or privacy information) - are there certain bits of information people should delete when posting terminal returns online?

What comes to my mind:
user names
MAC address
partition identification numbers - GUUID (if GPT is used)
partition labels
