The plugin works perfectly as described. Note that after installing it, you'll still see the old recorded activities on the wall, but the plugin will stop recording the checked activities hence, they'll not show on your wall.

I noticed that the automatic loading of posts on the News Feed & Groups had stopped working effectively after installing this plugin. They kept reloading the same six newest posts and wouldn't lost the rest. After much time investigating what the problem was, I uninstalled this plugin and the website is finally running normally again. Avoid!

Thanks for trying, but I recommend you ensure plugin is functioning properly, before you try and sell other plugins (I saw all your other plugins for BP, and they "sounded" like awesome plugins), but because this plugin has failed to do its job as expected, I uninstalled, and obviously I won't be exposed to the other plugins you have for purchasing. Make sure you have a solid product before pitching more products and services (lost of confidence is multiplied) - and I love purchasing plugins (CodeCanyon, BuddyDev, PhiloPress, etc.). PS the big issue is there were only 2 options to remove activities, yet there are many more you should have included (Friends, New Member, Profile Update, Group, Blogs, Mentions, etc.).
