Hi Boone,

I just noticed that two comments on showed up in the activity stream despite the fact that they were filtered into the spam queue of that blog and not published on the post itself

I know that the activity stream plugin will need to be updated when we install the new version of BP, so maybe it's not worth fixing this, but I wanted to mention it. I deleted the two spam comments from the news feed.

I've seen this a few times too, and heard it reported from a number of people using the plugin, but I've been unable to locate the problem (or reproduce it on my test installations). I think it might be something particular to this version of BP/WP, so I'm hoping that after the site upgrade the issue will go away. If not, I will take it up at that point.

  • Status changed from Assigned to Hold

After working with some other users of the plugin, I've established a couple more checks for spam status in the plugin. I just updated the Commons version to the most recent version and activated it sitewide. I'm changing the ticket status to Hold so that we can have time to monitor the feed for spam.

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for spam.

Matt, have you been monitoring the stream? I have been looking casually and I haven't seen any spam leak through. If you concur, I'll presume that the problem is fixed with the latest changes.

I think we can close this. I'm not able to do so for some reason...

  • Status changed from Hold to Resolved

Marking as fixed. (Also I fixed the problem where you couldn't switch from Hold to Closed)
