Need ability to hide "Recent activity" sidebar
Since the redesign, on most pages I see a huge sidebar box labeled "recent activity". I have no reason or desire to look at this, yet it is taking up most of the space on the screen. You should offer the ability to hide this, or at least.
Maybe if you weren't wasting all that space on "recent activity", you could actually show the site controls on the left side of the screen. Why is "recent activity" considered more important than any of the UI verbs, such it needs several times more screen space?
Marking as "major" as this seriously impacts site usability on small screens such as the one on my laptop.
