#4773: Akismet ignoring the "Allow Akismet..." setting

 On my site I have fairly strict user registration requirements, and
 therefore I have the setting ''Allow Akismet to scan for activity stream
 spam'' set to DISABLED (unchecked).

 While poking around my database today I noticed something really
 disturbing. Despite Akismet (allegedly) being disabled, bp_activity_meta
 entries are being created and processed for every activity item that is
 registered. To make things worse, Akismet is even flagging certain
 activity items as spam with a '''100% false positive rate'''!

 I would suggest that if the "allow Akismet" setting is not selected, then
 Akismet shouldn't interact with the bp_activity_meta database at all.
