 I think rather than going along the lines of throttling activity inserts,
 BP should be smarter about how it queries and displays multiple instances
 of the same kind of activity data. There's a lot of parallels between this
 and the Notifications toolbar, too.

 For example, on WordPress.com, if a user "likes" a blog post, you get a
 notification that says that. If three people like the same post, the
 original notification re-appears but now says "x, y, and z, liked your
 post", and if you have many likes, it becomes something like "x, y, and
 431 other people liked your post" - but there's still a "like" recorded
 for each user. Having 433 individual like notifications would suck. :)

 BP's Notifications needs to eventually work like this, and there's no
 reason our activity stream items shouldn't do something similar, but these
 are big ideas and we should take time carefully to think about the
