Comment (by Prometheus Fire):

 I admit that I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw that this ticket was
 being discussed again. This is something I've been struggling with for two
 years now.

 I like UI concepts and am going to push for @karmatosed's version of the
 UI, simply because it feels more flexible. I added an attachment which
 modified her's a little bit to accommodate the input of a custom text
 string for the activity record. The argument being, if you are going to
 allow CPTs in the activity stream, being able to define the text is an
 valuable part of it. I currently use 4 CPTs in my activity stream and I
 found that the most important aspect of it when setting it up was writing
 custom text. From a UI point of view, perhaps the ''Allow comments'' and
 ''Text'' input stuff could be greyed out until ''Show in activity'' is

 Additionally, some of the feedback I've received from my users about the
 impact my CPTs have had on the activity stream is that I have no way to
 filter them (it's just something I've never worked out how to do). They've
 reported that it clutters the activity stream and makes it hard to use and
 understand. As this ticket moves forward, I think its important to
 remember that when a CPT is added to the stream, it is also added to the
 dropdown filter so that they can be sorted out from the rest of the stream
 records. Similar to how BBPress topics and replies show up there. Since
 I've never been able to figure out how to do this, CPTs are lumped in with
 blog posts and cannot be filtered on their own.
