 Following on from two tickets #6821 & #6719 and investigation of current
 BP behaviour it appears we have a problematic set of functionality when
 checking comments for allowed number of links as configured from the WP
 Discussion settings.

 Currently our issues are broadly:

 * Lack of a meaningful error message when exceeding permitted number of
 links in a comment or status update.
 * Silent destruction of entered data with no means of retrieving.
 * Inability to properly follow WP queued pending approval of comments.
 * Lack of any actual moderation - despite error message - when posting a
 status update; the update will be displayed despite exceeding  max number
 of links set and generating the warning message.

 Our actions result in:
 * Post a comment to a post, WP queues this for approval, approve the
 comment to publish it, check activity stream to find no comment added.
 * Post comment as a subscriber from the activity stream to a post, exceed
 the allowed links, receives the error message and no comment posted, check
 the WP dashboard comment is listed but listed as 'Approved', contrary to
 what should be seen as a comment pending. Regardless of the comment
 existing in WP terms and approved it will never figure in activity stream.
 * Add a status update, exceed links allowed, receive error message,
 however the status update is actually accepted and displayed with no
 actual moderation and we can see the update in user screens and members

 Given that `bp_core_check_for_moderation` isn't ready for prime time
 currently or at least the checks on act stream and updates are not able to
 tie into the WP queued pending approval the wise course of action is
 probably to pull this functionality altogether until #6719 can be

 A patch will be added to remove `bp_check_for_moderation()`
