comment Security risks posed by specifying technologies used
The question concerned whether advertising the technologies used to build the site will--all other things being equal--lessen the security of the site; it won't. By all means, take steps to harden your site. But, even if server tokens are turned off, a hacker can just go down the list of common servers and common exploits for each. What percentage of sites run on Apache or IIS? Quite a large percentage of them. Not my forte, but I would assume throwing everything against the wall and seeing what sticks is as common, when it comes to server exploits, if not more so, that surgical precision.

comment Does e-commerce platform matter for branding
Good advice, this. Users care about UX. If the app is easy to use, gives relevant feedback, and is responsive, they're happy. Developers need to care about a much wider range of things, interoperability chief among them.
