Because that's SOOO much more important than the core software copyright...

I removed the powered by phpbb becasue the site was hacked after people searching for 'powered by phpbb'
That wouldn't be a problem if PHPBB's security procedures were more transparent.

Little does he know, he could (1) change it to generic 2.0 (2) remove the version number, leave the phpBB copyright, (3) PATCH THE BOARD SO IT DOESN'T GET HACKED.

They can remove them, but they won't get support from phpBB.com though... Doubt they'll need it anyways...

However it is ironic that an open source project would do that. Wonder how they feel about copyrights being removed. :)

They didn't remove it... they comented it out and they only did that for security reasons.

well the admin said the site was running 2.0.3, If they want to avoid being hacked they should upgrade instead of commenting out the copyright
