Is there no tool to fight profile SPAM in BBPress?
This codex article is quite comprehensive about how to fight SPAM. (https://codex.bbpress.org/getting-started/forum-moderation/dealing-with-spam/)
However, although it acknowledges profile SPAM, it fails amongst the many solutions to actually identify a method that is targeted at battling profile SPAM. You could switch to manual registration approval (which would be a pain in any moderate to high traffic site), but that would not solve the problem since the approved user can still post links in their profile.
Akismet, WangGuard, etc, appear to only work on post/comment spam, not on profile spam, no?
I don’t even have discussions enabled or commenting enabled so I don’t even care about post/comment spam!
So as far as I can tell there is no plug-in or feature that will prevent profile SPAM. Someone please tell me I’m wrong!
