    Yesterday an user registered via facebook (social login) has sent dating messages to many users!
    Is there any way to limits messages to x number?
    Or only if friends?
    Or only if user has other messages /comments approved in community blog?

    So, is there something i can do to defense my community for this problem?

    Thanks,
    S.N. (laltroweb.it)

    something like the https://buddydev.com/plugins/bp-private-message-rate-limiter/ may be helpful if you really want to stop 99.9% of it.. that one is premium / costs $19.. but it’s more of a hindrance to the spammers than just the spamshield.. which I use and think it stops 90% of them.. so is the other 9.9% worth the premium.. situations vary..

    Ill try to try spamshield, but this is the most bad experience as possible with a plugin.
    Warning in log > update = error 500, every release more bugged than before (check support topic and u can see a lot of reqwuest for many website offline for this plugin).

    no, thanks, i need/prefer something of more stable 🙂

    for a time wp-spamshield was very good – but it conflicts with other plugins making headaches — no longer available

    i have a spam problem in my forums section and Wordfence, which i have installed, suggested my problem maybe this. their words:
    “You will need to ask the BuddyPress plugin authors for current best recommendations if they are recommending very outdated information on their support page to prevent spam registrations.”
    is this true and if so what is the solution? how do i stop this spam?
