That PR is not a "permission" based PR. It is simply disallowing the viewing of the flags for guests and bots still doesn't stop the queries from running.

The extension allows to not show the flags on the index page.

Once this extension gets validated I may consider disallowing guests to view the flags BUT it would seem to not really be worth it. Even if guests know one's location, countries are, usually pretty large so quite impossible for them to be able to do anything with it. I have mine set to US I highly doubt anyone would be able to determine where in the US I am located based off of that. I highly doubt if I will include a completely new permission.

Added a new config entry to allow the flags to be displayed to guests and bots or not. https://github.com/RMcGirr83/phpBB-3.1- ... 89b3239dbc

In some parts of the world you might get "bullied" based on what country you come from. The part of the country does not matter.

And how, exactly, would a guest or a bot "bully" someone?

Oh, there are many ways ... if you really want to.
But this was just a thought from me about why someone might not want to show the flags for guests.
