Comment (by hnla):

 >I noticed that I missed implementing the "Comment Blacklist"
 >hope this is what you meant by WP spam list words, hnla!
 Sorry, yes I was confusing things with terminology, not sure why I used
 the word 'Spam', but WP provides for two status labels 'pending', and

 'Blacklist' == words prohibited and if found in comment trashed by WP and
 '''no message is shown''' to user  - this is a silent action!.

 'Comment Moderation' == kicks in on either exceeding a set number of links
 ''or'' inclusion of a proscribed work in moderation list and the offending
 comment is queued in the 'Pending' list ( not 'Spam'! .

 We correctly trapped excessive links and words in the moderation panel (
 previously my ref to 'spam list')

 Yes missed the blacklist in this implementation (prior to .02 patch),
 blacklisted words that would cause WP to trash comment are published in
 the act stream.

 However again crux of our issue with post comments remains that whether we
 publish act stream comment or trap it with error message we do pass them
 through to the post proper bypassing the WP moderation or blacklisting.

 >Activity moderation is a big task. In order to match WP functionality, we
 would need to introduce an 'activity_status'...

 I began to realise this when I was looking at code base to see what could
 be done, in lieu of being able to tackle this we need to ensure if the
 moderation /blacklist check returns true we need to unlink the post sync.

 >Or we can simply stop recording activity items that match a blacklisted

 Yes we need to do this for blacklist words, that will roughly equate to
 that which WP does (although we technically destruct data where WP retains
 it for admins to deal with in 'trash')
