#2678: Hidden/private group activity displaying on public streams

 Activity from hidden groups is shown on some public streams, if the
 show_hidden flag on.

 This arises out of a confusion of what show_hidden is supposed to do.
 Currently, it does two things:
 1) Keeps duplicate content from the main activity stream (ie 'Boone is now
 friends with Paul' and 'Paul is now friends with Boone', where the second
 one might be marked hide_sitewide)
 2) Keeps content from hidden/private groups out of the stream

 The problem is that some of the workarounds to make (1) work the way that
 it does (see #2293) end up overriding some of the things that (2) is
 supposed to do. See the bp.org situation as an example.

 The real solution is to split hide_sitewide into two different columns.
