Some of our private groups would like to have their activity 'cloaked' from the Groups module on the Main page. It doesn't seem to be an option.

Perhaps it should be. No use for members to click on these specific groups icons and wind-up on a "you need an invitation" page. It's not very friendly.

In the meantime can javaScript wizardry do the job?

You could set the module to show "0" items. Of course that would mean all of the activity from your other groups would also be hidden.

We have about 30 active groups, and the module is a great way to jump to current discussions. We sort them by latest activity and when the private groups are active they keep to the top of the heap. It invites frustrating experiences and actually promotes negatively these private groups.

It shouldn't be too hard to do for Ning - activity from these groups is already filtered out of the Latest Activity module. Perhaps a checkbox in the Edit Group page?

Interesting observation and suggesting, AU, however won't this also work?

1.  Feature ALL of your groups excel private ones and 

2.   Show only featured groups in the Group box and 

3.   Set a flag called Public or whatever that shows only public groups?

The problem I see is that Featured Groups is a static list. Groups will appear in the order they were featured and not budge.

Yip I agree, it doesnt make any sense. If the group is private but still activities are featured in the latest activity to others.
