 Reopening. If we are going to kill the page like this, we should use the
 existing bp_is_user_spammer() and bp_is_user_deleted() functions, rather
 than off-load the logic.

 This is also a fairly substantial change in our approach; until now, we've
 not stopped spam accounts being able to *read* the site, and instead have
 been preventing them posting to forms, and blocking them from creating new
 content (this bug not withstanding), etc. I think I prefer this "old"
 approach, so I wanted to re-open for a bit more discussion.

 Sorry for not having seen this patch in the last couple of months to offer
 this feedback prior to the commit.
