Comment (by terranova23):

 @imath I'm not sure if I understand your question, but I can tell you that
 the groups are set to private and I did use the recalculate privacy tool,
 so my understanding is that those groups should be set to 1 for
 hide_sitewide. If you can point me to where I should look in the database
 (are you talking about groups or specific activities?) I can double check.

 @r-a-y From the ticket you posted, it looks like that user is saying her
 forums were set to public, and that was causing the forum activity to
 appear in the stream even though the groups are set to private. I just
 checked, and indeed, many of our forums are set to public.

 I've just looked up several threads discussing the privacy settings for
 bbPress and I'm not sure I fully understand. If I set them to private,
 will the site users be unable to access the forums? I just want to avoid
 having tons of users get shut out of their class forums. If you can point
 me to a page with some clear info on this I'd be grateful as I wasn't able
 to find one.

 As far as recreating the issue, I have not done this test, though I can if
 these other solutions don't solve the problem.

 Thank you both for your time and your responses.
