Balloni, I think it is self explanatory. I checked my settings on geocaching.com and indeed this setting can be set there (on the bottom):

Locus is authorized API developer. The user has opted out of showing his info in auth API apps, thus is not visible.

Did not know about this option, thanks Marty!!

Well, here is hardly anything to do. Logs are downloaded by geocaching4Locus and this text is definitely supplied by Groundspeak itself.

I started noticing it few months ago, but didn't think much of it in line of "OK, some people want to have extra layer of privacy, but as it is less than 1% of logs I've seen, I am OK with that.
