Not to be a jacka** or whatever, but is there a reason the phpBB copyright and credit is removed? People really work hard on the software and if you look in overall_footer.tpl, it advises against removing it.

No offence, but as a free software developer, it just seems very insulting.

Its removed because I felt like it, and its been removed ever since BA opened over 18 months ago. Everybody who is anybody knows its phpBB, and all the credit remains in the source code etc, so I don't see what the problem is.

It can advise all it likes, it still doesn't stop me removing it. What it DOES prevent me doing is saying I wrote and own the software.

Again, it doesn't affect you so I don't see what the problem is.
