 Yes, but I'm talking about site admins.

 >  In the example above. If site A want to track 'foo' and site B doesn't
 want, he can choose to deactivate the tracking.

 You mean A can opt in while B can opt out, without disabling tracking
 altogether? I know that B can disable tracking by making his site private.
 But if A checks the Foo box, while B unchecks it, won't it be the case
 that all Foo posts across the network are still recorded? I don't see
 where in the patch it's checking the settings that are specific to the

 > if the blog is defining itself as not public, then, the Site Tracking
 settings menu is no more available

 Ah, you're right. I missed that (the `is_public` check). But even this is
 a bit confusing, because the menu simply disappears when changing what
 appears to be an unrelated setting ('Discourage search engines').

 > My concern is more about the drop down list to filter activities.. If
 the network is tracking a lot of post types, this can be huge !!

 Could be, but I have a hard time imagining a network that has more than a
 few dozen post types. (Think about how many plugins you'd be running if
 you had more than this!)


 I had another thought as I was writing this. What, if anything, should we
 do about plugins that handle their own activity items? Say, bbPress.
 Ideally, we would keep them out of the list of checkboxes, or else they'd
 be duplicated in the activity stream. What do you think?
