 At this time, BuddyPress generally does not put new settings into other
 blogs' settings around a WP Network installation. There are plugins out
 there that provide finer-grained blog privacy settings
 (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/more-privacy-options/ springs to
 mind), and I think that the modification of the blog privacy screen should
 stay in the realm of plugins.

 However, there are some things that BP core could do to help make this
 happen better. See the attached patch: it filters the blog_public blog
 option that is checked before BP creates blog-related activity items. With
 such filters in place, two things could happen: (1) Admins could easily
 write a small filter that checks against a whitelist/blacklist of blogs,
 and (2) someone could write a small plugin (or an addon for something like
 More Privacy Options) that allows the blog owner to make those decisions
 in the Dashboard UI.

 I think this is a fair compromise: it allows for the flexibility in
 question, without having BP inject options into what should be a vanilla
 WPMS installation. Thoughts?
