 Thanks for the feedback. There are really two separate issues here.

 The first is whether Settings should be on by default. I have always kinda
 thought this, and I find your reasoning pretty convincing. Plus, ever
 since we stopped enabling it by default, we've gotten odd reports of
 things breaking and people getting confused by the fact that these
 features are "missing". I'd like to see what the rest of the team thinks
 first, but I think enabling it by default is definitely something to
 consider for 1.9.

 The second is whether Activity should be on by default. I disagree with
 your idea "it needs too much modification" - Activity works fine out of
 the box, even if many other plugins don't integrate with it. And while it
 may be true that most WordPress sites don't need Activity, I think that
 most *BuddyPress* sites do.

 Feedback from others?
