 This is a follow-up to #8403.

 On my site, I've been debugging as to why comment replies can't be posted.
 It looks similar to the defect in #8403.

 The ajax call is reporting a 403 Forbidden and the 'link has expired' -
 i.e. the typical invalid nonce response.

 Here's the request payload when the Post comment button is pressed
 [HTTP/2 403 Forbidden 1255ms]

     action      "new_activity_comment"
     cookie      "bp-members-scope%3Dall%26bp-members-filter%3Dnewest"
     comment_id  "12887"
     form_id     "12887"
     content     "test"
     _bp_as_nonce_12887  "06e8279c68"



 Within the HTML there are two nonce values:
 <input type="hidden" id="_bp_as_nonce_12887" name="_bp_as_nonce_12887"
 <input type="hidden" id="_wpnonce_new_activity_comment"
 name="_wpnonce_new_activity_comment" value="e89b7147cc">

 Wordpress version 5.6.1
