Copyright for content written at xenforo.com?

Hi,

I recently recognized that there is at least one developer who seems to mirror all content written in the discussion threads of his add-ons here at xenforo.com to his own site.

If someone takes part in such a discussion who is not registered at his site also, the content of the message will be copied over with the same username but a "Guest" allocation.

Since I don't like to have my posts written at this site copied to a foreign site, I am asking about an official statement from XenForo about that. Is it allowed for a developer to copy his support threads to his own site?

Thank you.

Good morning,

What is with this point:
You may not access the Service through automated or programmatic means (such as through a content scraper) without prior permission from us.
A - the developer do this illegal
or
B - the developer do this with permission from xenforo

Regards
