I prefer my Activity Feed to contain only project-relevant actions (e.g., commits). I recently found my feed polluted with my issue comments. How can I remove specific entries from my GitHub Activity Feed (and prevent this from happening again)?

I'll have to deal with it...

I'm afraid that's not possible currently, sorry about that.

It's a pity they don't have such support. Thanks for the answer. – tftd Sep 8 '12 at 3:46

We can clear your entire public activity for you, but not individual events. Let me know if you'd like me to do that for you.

Cheers, Steve

Nice quote, but what are you trying to tell? That it is possible now? – Jacob Jan Tuinstra May 9 '13 at 18:24
isn't the quote clear enough ? – Goblin May 19 '13 at 16:48

GitHub support advised me that as a matter of policy they do not clear public activity unless it exposes sensitive information.
