With spam an ever increasing concern, BuddyPress is currently ill equipped to prevent spam or unapproved content before it starts. As such, BuddyPress core needs functions that can check any submitted data against WordPress core's illegal keys, as well as protect any child component from flooding.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Functions are in, activity stream is using it. Other components can take advantage of this at a later date. Note that bbPress 2 already uses these. Closing as fixed.

The function bp_core_check_for_flood in bbp-core-moderation.php is not hooked to anything. No flood control on activity page.
