Lauren I slightly agree with you, but how about the owners? The purpose of a good script like this one is to generate money, unless we all come up with something like securing.. like buying the TOTAL and lock the installation, like saying enough is enough
Flarum 1.1.0 release adding my suggestion
When you enter a topic on first page (of its original post) and click edit
It auto scrolls the comment section automatic, i don't know if anyone else has noticed that behavior?
For some people who are using ads , google might detect this as bot? Imagine, when huge traffic caught at the same session

EDIT: sorry for expanding this explanation:-
If Flarum becomes popular, most of us who are using shared hosting would be forced to use cloudflare or other sort of server protections. I myself i have started to receive more than 250 blocked threats everyday, in just one month now, google had to report it to me, like "hey, its your job to ensure you protect the advertisers / advertisements because they are paying" .. Security is one thing everyone should take it seriously!
Most of these threats are auto generated bots which come looking for url paths like wp-login , wp-include , which smells like they are looking to find a wordpress script internal files, so i can say at the moment we are at least safe because Flarum script is not shared or installed by using zip's archives?
We are also very lucky flarum does not have login url and the adwares seem to not know yet the system structure files.
I had to put the site in ddos attack mode where it created a js kind of protection layer, which traced all visitors, and then block those who failed automatic or i was suspicious with.... If you try this, you will be surprised how your site is crawled by useless bots, even rankers. I keep saying each day, flarum is the best you can find, very fast, but bad bots eat up your server big!
Its the best has been the best because of how it has been playing out, ssh installs e.t.c 👍️
