Activity stream spam

  • ewebber


    Hi all,
    I’m having an issue with a human spammer that keeps signing up. They are clearly human spam rather than a bot, so there is only so much I can do about stopping them, but the biggest problem they are causing is replying to activity stream items which sends emails out to the original poster and is making the members nervous!

    I’m not yet on BuddyPress 1.5 so I can’t take advantage of @djpaul ‘s wonderful BP labs/ activity spam plugin. So I am going to take the temporary measure of removing the ability to reply on the activity stream until they leave me alone.

    I’ve taken activity/enty.php from my child theme and commented out the code

    <a href="” class=”acomment-reply” id=”acomment-comment-“> ()

    This removes the reply button from activity, but I cannot see how to remove the reply from the replies (here’s what I mean

    Does anyone know where I can remove that too?
