Comment (by MikeGillihan):

 Thanks for the quick replies.

 I'm not sure anything other than removing/replacing the hidden class would
 resolve this ticket, but I don't think I could call this a bug in BP
 either. In my opinion, the CSS pattern itself is pretty shortsighted and
 shouldn't be used, especially with the !important tag.

 In the project I'm working on I added a quick override using !important
 because the theme employs many of
 H5BP's] styles. I'm pretty sure bootstrap used the same pattern at some
 point so I figured tracking the issue was worth it.

 Not being knee deep in BuddyPress I'm not sure what ramifications removing
 the class would have functionally. It seems to be a bit of a damned if you
 do, damned if you don't situation.

 Again, thanks for the response and listening to me ramble. :)
