Is BuddyPress for me?
I am the registered owner of the domain Links.com.
For some time, I have been looking for some good community software that I can run on it, but I have rejected everything I have come across, because of on-going maintenance issues, both with the software and the community comments.
Before, I consider the subject matter, I want to make sure that I will not have major headaches that will interrupt by rather quiet retirement. So I have two basic questions:
1) How good is BuddyPress right now at quashing spam comments and links. It is imperative, that I keep this to zero, just as I have on my WordPress blog that exists on my site at this time. Right now, on WP, I am using Akismet and WP-Spam, as well as moderation on any comment that contains a link.
2) Are there developers available that can enhance spam protection for me. I would like to include plugins that will eat any post that contains blacklisted words, compare any links in a post to the urls that appear in the Google Safe Browsing API database (I have working PHP code that does this for another app I developed), and also compare and reject any post that has links on the urlblacklist.com database or comparable (I also have working code for this).
If I can be comfortable that I will not have to go around with a fly swatter deleting nasty posts and comments, I think I can go ahead and look over the software further.
Thanks for the help.
