Copyright for content written at xenforo.com?

    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,

    A - the developer do this illegal
    B - the developer do this with permission from xenforo

    It would require permission from XenForo.
