 Hi @imath,

 thank you very much for this thorough explanation!

 I'm perfectly fine with closing this issue if this is not possible. It
 would be great if @r-a-y can have a look too to confirm this.

 As a support guy (moderated the German support forums for 5 years) I am
 just stumbled upton the missing documentation. If you search for disabling
 notifications you find the solutions to fix this in WP core. And then you
 are wondering why you still get notifications with BuddyPress installed. I
 think this could be improved (talking UX and user/admin expectations).

 How about adding an option? So that Admins can configure this in
 BuddyPress itself? And they do not have to find two different solutions to
 fix this (WP core action and BuddyPress filter)?

 Another possible solution could be to add an extra filter just for the
 notification setting itself (user, admin, both or no one - using false)
 which is used from core *and* BuddyPress.

 Thanks for considering!
