I'm in final stages of developing a new site and I'm doing this live. I've not promoted it and it is on a topic that I doubt spammers would find by searching for it. I have it set to admin approval of new members and am getting a trickle of applications, every one of which, so far has been from a known spam IP. How are these people finding my site, is it simply that they are searching for the standard Xenforo copyright and link footer text? If so is this sufficient reason to spend $250 for "Branding Removal"? or am I too late and will my site now be on a spammers target list for eternity?
