    I also assumed that legacy implied they weren’t intended to be used any longer.

    @ryanhellyer

    is that just due to development reasons or is there another reason you don’t like it?

    Brian Krogsgard summed it up pretty well … http://krogsgard.com/2012/jetpack/

    Just to clarify, I do intend to add support for Jetpack eventually, it’s just at the bottom of my list of things to support since it is a hassle to deal with.

    gotcha not to try and make you explain why or anything since i probably wouldn’t understand the answer anyway

    You will understand. It’s simply because Jetpack only seems to work when something is on the internet. That makes testing pretty much impossible unless I launch a live site just for testing Jetpack, which is kinda ridiculous.

    but a LOT of wordpress sites do use JetPack i pretty much consider it a prerequisite for any site that wants traffic.

    To each his own. I strongly dislike Jetpack. Myself and many others recommend people against using it.

    Thanks tibmix!

    Thanks for trying out the plugin. I have no idea why that bug would be occurring, but I’ll look into it soon for you and see what I can work out. It seems to be working fine on my test installation, but I have a slightly different version on my live site.

    Once I’ve done some testing (probably tomorrow evening) I’ll post back here, hopefully with a solution.

    Jetpack is not currently supported. I might get around to testing it with Jetpack in the future, but I haven’t found the time to do that yet. Jetpack makes things very difficult to test wtih.

    The Spam Destroyer plugin definitely won’t stop comma seperated lists. It doesn’t even look at your post content in fact.

    It should be more “accurate” since it’s not using heuristic techniques to detect spam. Those sorts of techniques should work very well in concert with what my plugin does though. Anything that gets through the Spam Destroyer should be fed through Akismet for checking, in theory leading to an extremely low amount of spam.

    The plugin seems to be working fine so far. I haven’t received any complaints so far.

    I’ve posted a new version for download:

    The main difference with this new version is that it lets me track statistics on how well the plugin is working on your site (assuming you opt-in for it). This should help me work out how well the plugin is working without having to pester people for updates on the plugins progress :)

    It does user registrations, site registrations and logged out user comments.

    I don’t actually use BuddyPress, so don’t have any way to test it in a live situation myself. It is dealing with my blog comment spam flawlessly though.

    I’m trying to do the exact same thing right now. It has gone smoothly, bar version 1.5 featuring no CSS for the admin bar, then on upgrading to 1.6 the admin bar CSS was fixed, but all the menu items in the admin bar disappeared.

    Any ideas on how to get the BuddyPress bar menu items back?

    I chose to use the new admin bar menu instead of the older one, so perhaps I could go back to that to fix it? It seems like moving to the regular WordPress one would be best though.

    Load problems like this are either caused by high traffic or a poorly configured setup. The first task should be to figure out what the problem is.

    Failing that, try more expensive hosting. WP Engine has a good reputation and seem to be able to handle reasonably high amounts of traffic with no problems. They can also assist with finding highly inefficient plugins you may be running.
