[BUG]Moderator activity in the Activity stream

This has already been mentioned on SCN but no changes so far. Various moderator activities are showing up in the activity streams of the moderator followers. We should not see such information.

1. Exhibit A - I still get pages full of this "performed action" nonsense.

2. Not sure what happened with Exhibit B (moderator comments). Nothing about this in the Known Issue list.

3. I constantly see "X updated the question" where X is a moderator. These are usually tag reassignments and such, I figure.

These items should not be visible to the moderator's SCN followers. If anything, this is a privacy issue. If I'm not the one moderated - keep it out of my stream. Please put this on a list and give this a priority.

Hello Jelena,

Thanks for summarizing your feedback nicely. I have a ticket created for the (second issue) - Likes and edits on editorial comments should not be shown in the Activity Stream. The problem is that this issue is categorized behind some of the other more pressing issues currently and that is why it has not been resolved yet. In the meantime I will request to update the known issues page while this ticket is being processed. And this change is certainly within the scope. Thank you so much for highlighting it.

(first issue) Also has been identified as a UI bug. As much as I would like for this to be solved, this too sadly has been categorized behind the pressing matters and will be resolved as soon as possible.

(third issue) I completely agree that such updates should not be in the Activity Stream. I am currently working with other SMEs to address this issue and will update you.

Sajid, thank you for a reply. I'm wondering if anyone could update the "known issues" list, so that at least we could see how far behind the other pressing matters these items are. It seems the list has not been updated for quite some time.

Thank you.
