Comment (by r-a-y):

 WordPress uses localized times for the most part and are not as reliant on
 UTC as we are.

 However, they do make one change in `strtotime()` when using the post's
 GMT date:

 They either use the timezone difference "+0000" or the GMT timezone so the
 time is set to GMT.  Perhaps that's something we should think about doing
 ourselves?  Could use some feedback here.

 For now, I'll remove the `bp_core_strtotime()` references, but the other
 changes from my patch should be good (removal of `strtotime()` in various
 spots, using `bp_core_current_time( true, 'timestamp' )` where necessary).
