 Replying to [comment:26 DJPaul]:
 > But I would need convincing that there needs to be a UI option for this,
 or that there's a meaningful use case somewhere where you want Akismet for
 comments, but not for anything else (e.g. bbPress forums, activity).

 Akismet has a free query limit.

 You coult have 10, 20, 30 comments day, but you can have hundreds of
 activities each day. That means that many people may find that the exhaust

 That can mean two different things, one that more people pay for Akismet.
 Two, there will be many people who uninstall Akismet to not have that

 Another reason, I had Akismet in bbPress. I uninstalled Akismet because
 25% of legitimate post ended in Akismet moderation. I was all day marking
 legitimate post as not spam.

 If it will be going to be the same with BuddyPress activities, this can
 become a hell.
