Fixed XenForo copyright link missing rel="noopener"

Affected version
LightHouse complains about the copyright link not having rel="noopener".

It would be nice if this attribute could be added to make LightHouse (and Google) happy.

We have added noopener ... and sponsored 😲

For a long time people have occasionally asked us to nofollow the copyright link but Google's changes last year means there is the sponsored value which semantically fits so we've added that at the same time.
LightHouse does complain about
And this is an uber minor point but I just wanted to mention it in case it helps but you can shorten this sentence to:

LightHouse complains about

The "does" is entirely superfluous and its inclusion generally makes the post harder to read because it isn't as natural.
