bbPress can use Akismet service to check topics and replies for spam, and there is no option available  to control this integration, and if you use Akismet, you will be forced to use it for bbPress content too.

The only way to disable Akismet integration is to disable bbPress Akismet extend library from loading.

Code to disable Akismet integation

add_action('init', 'bbhelp_club_disable_akismet_integration');
function bbhelp_club_disable_akismet_integration() {
  remove_action('bbp_ready', 'bbp_setup_akismet', 2);
