Comment (by dcavins):

 Boone, I agree with doing this query based on the user's capabilities and
 memberships rather than some combination of group visibility and
 hide_sitewide. How many classes of activity are there? I'm guessing, here:

 Public activity
 Friendships, new members, activity in public groups

 Limited audience activity
 Activity in private and hidden groups, activity to be seen only by friends

 Private activity
 User-only, like creation of a private bp-doc

 From your comments on other tickets, it seems you think a single
 "hide_sitewide" isn't enough to work with? What are you thinking, a "this
 is private" and "this is a duplicate of another activity"?

 Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help out on this
