Comment (by trishasalas):

 I have the custom post types added to the Activity Filter dropdown menu.
 The original menu items are currently still hard-coded.  I believe that
 will require a separate function and will work on that as well.  I am
 posting now as I have the items I want to exclude from `type` hard coded
 into the sql query.  I tried a regex and `NOT LIKE` but wasn't able to get
 close enough...thought someone might have a more elegant solution.

 Here is my function:

 function bp_get_activity_filter_links( $args = false ) {
                 global $wpdb;
                 global $bp;

                 // Fetch the names of components that have activity
 recorded in the DB
                 $add_cpts = $wpdb->get_col( "SELECT DISTINCT type FROM
 {$bp->activity->table_name} WHERE type != 'activity_update'
         AND `type` != 'new_blog_post' AND `type` != 'joined_group' AND
 `type` != 'Post'", 0);

                 if ( empty( $add_cpts ) )
                         return false;

                 foreach ( $add_cpts as $add_cpt ) {

                         echo '<option value=' . $add_cpt . '>' . $add_cpt
 . '</option>';
