Activity stream pollution

This is one whole page of my activity stream just now. And I don't follow either the user in question, nor the appreciation awards blog, but I do follow the "Using SAP.com" tag.

Is it expected that I'd see this?

Looks like I should give the activity stream a miss until voting is over... :-(

    as expected you get all activity for a followed tag in the Activities.

    Unfortunately it was missed to give an option to opt out for specific content as it was possible in better ol' times

    Hi Steve, Sorry if the annoyance factor is overtaking the fun factor. I had requested all votes be submitted in a single comment to try to at least help reduce. I will re-emphasize in the instructions. I know it doesn't solve the issue, but hopefully will help.

    Jurgen's answer above explains the reason all too well Steve. The new upcoming redesigns to the homepage and activity stream will group all such activity per content item so users do not have to suffer through this and their streams won't be as polluted.

    • Grouping of events is absolutely different from filtering. And with grouping the sequence of events is lost - in some cases grouping is useful but in another you need a sequence of individual events. So it's better first to implement configurable filtering (saved for the user). Unfollow specific item is a sample of this filtering.
