#3502: Remove WordPress version dropdown from forums

 When creating a new topic on the WordPress.org forums you are asked to
 fill in your current WordPress version.

 This field is often ignored, or the user doesn't actually know their own
 version and just pick the most recent (it's not always very obvious what
 version you are on for the average user).

 Because of this, let's remove this field to avoid information "noise".

 This seems to be a simple matter of deactivating the `wporg-bbp-version-
 dropdown` plugin, just commenting out the actions and filters is also an
 option, but I'm not sure if other things on .org utilizes the plugin?
