I would imagine that "xenforo"-websites have been specifically targeted by bots ? For whatever reason..... So I think bots can see the wording "xen" and "xenforo" in the source-code of our forum-scripts and then hitting all of our forums with spam ? A long long time ago I have purchased a "branding free" licence for XF and have asked why there is no version which is removing the wording "xenforo" from the source-code. The answer from Kier was: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/branding-free-split-from-version-number.1593/page-7#post-49626 I am wondering now if the reference to "xenforo" in the source-code would be eliminated, would this then diminish the spam and bot-attacks ?
