#1536: Separate BP blog visibility from WPMU blog visibility (privacy)

 WPMU provides two options for "blog visibility":

 1) I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search
 engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers
 2) I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors

 Neither of these (to me) imply "make my blog invisible in Buddypress".

 Many of the BP blog display options key off of this setting and disable
 such things as activity stream updates, "My Blogs" menu visibility, etc.
 for blogs that have been set to block search engines.

 Possibly adding a check box to the "WPMU blog privacy" page that has
 something like:

 [ ] Disable BuddyPress status updates for this blog.

 Make it a check box as some users may want to have their blog picked up by
 the search engines but not have the BP activity stream updated.

 This would also be useful for BP installations that are on a private
 intranet. We typically don't want to send out pings for any blog postings
 but we do want all parts of the site to be visible to users (or at least
 logged in users).
