Older posts appearing in activity stream
Over the past week I've noticed some older posts creeping back in the activity stream. For example Lee's post "Learn Greek, Support Open Access" is currently appearing on the homepage, but was published back in May. Do you know if this is a bug or perhaps something related to the users updating blog posts?

It looks like a recent blog post pushed Lee's post off the homepage, but here's a screenshot of the news activity feed with the blog posts filter. It's the same view as both a logged-in and logged-out user. Also, I noticed that Lee wrote a new post directly before the old one appeared. Another odd observation was that Brian's latest round-up post appeared directly after it, and it had already appeared in the activity feed yesterday.

I am seeing a couple of posts that appear to be out of place in the activity stream. Lee's post about open access is from May and Brian's post was from yesterday, not 7 hours ago. It may be because they updated the post, but it looked odd and I wasn't sure if it was a bug or not.

Thanks for the details, Sarah.
I've verified that in the cases you've referenced, the issue is that the blog post was updated. This is thus the same issue as #1667. For that ticket, I manually applied a BP core patch to our installation. Since that time, the manual patch was overwritten by a BuddyPress upgrade (1.5.6; see https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/ea56f61b8a86666ddcad59816563e5122361cb0e#wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-blogs/bp-blogs-functions.php).
The fix described in the BuddyPress ticket will be included in BP 1.6 and thus CAC 1.4; see #1959. In the meantime, I'll reapply the patch to the Commons: https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/e95c4ace30b88b6acdc9ce04dbcf757c9421e759
