Non Registered users posting Spam

    This is an odd one – I’m getting spam in my bbPress installation. That’s not the odd thing, what is odd is that these are WordPress Comment spams (picked up by Akismet).

    So how can people, who are not registered, post comment spam against bbPress topics and posts?

    I’m confused by a few things here. How can comment spam also be forum spam? To my knowledge, there’s no way a non-registered user can create topics and replies unless you have the setting enabled in Settings > Forums allowing them to do so.

    What I’m saying is that the spam is showing up in the main blog spam list as being against topics, but bbPress is set to only allow registered users to post and the users posting spam are guests and the spam type is shown as “comment”.

    I don’t have any today yet – but I did turn off another plugin yesterday morning

    They seem to be pingback spam…
