Hi admins,

I noticed that external links have rel="nofollow noopener" added to them. I suggest changing this to rel="nofollow noreferrer" so that user browsers don't tell linked sites that their visitor came from here. It's sensitive information.

noopener is implied in noreferrer, so you don't need to have both.

Nice catch. I'd missed that.
Now to wait and see if they've got the ability to change it through the board software, or they'll have to do a hack on the server itself.
