Re: To bbPress or to WordPress
I like that few vs. many authors split… that’s a good way to put it.
One implication of that difference in focus is spam filtering. It’s easy to use Akismet to filter both boards topics and comments in bbPress… it’s harder to use Akismet to filter blog posts in WordPress (Akismet tends to focus on filtering blog comments, not blog posts).
That’s not to say you couldn’t get Akismet working on blog posts! I just haven’t seen any existing plugins that pull that off…
