 We have a `bp_core_check_for_flood()` function that was ported from
 bbPress 2, which currently isn't used anywhere. Throttling makes more
 sense on forums, because people are replying to topics. For BuddyPress, it
 would only be useful for activity comments and private messages.

 Note that throttles only really help prevent accidents; that is, hitting
 F5 and causing the form to submit twice, and so on. A determined spammer
 will figure out that interval very quickly (especially if BP ships with a
 default interval value).

 Either way, this is not in scope for 1.9, but if anyone wants to write a
 patch, let us know and we can look at this in a bit more detail together.
