Comment (by hnla):

 Further reasoning:

 This 'block_self' arg is designed to prevent showing a button for e.g
 friends on your own members loop entry and as such is set to 'true' by
 default which then runs a check for `bp_get_member_user_id() == true' and
 ==  `bp_loggedin_user_id()` if conditions are met we return false on the
 button creation.

 With group create & blog create buttons this condition of a button
 appearing in ones own loop entry is not a factor the create buttons should
 appear for all only based on capability to create and active components.

 We have rested safe in the knowledge that the initial check after
 block_self true/false `bp_get_member_user_id()` would faithfully return
 false on group/blog dir however that isn't really a valid check as the
 button doesn't render on members loops regardless, in this respect I
 suggest we ought to be passing the optional arg `'block_self' => false,`
 to the button class for these create buttons regardless of whether
 `bp_get_member_user_id()` is correctly or incorrectly returning a value?
