Currently Xenforo uses "Xenforo/2.x (https://yourboardurl)" by default as the user agent for all external http requests.

I suggest to make this a configurable option, because it sometimes leads to problems with sites classifying the requests as "bots" and denying access or showing challenges.

Also this could be a privacy problem, because the software and site url is submitted with each request.

If this would be an option an admin could easily change the user agent to something more generic and bypass restrictions.
