The idea would take lot of time to get approved (provided there are enough votes).
Till that time, I am using a browser trick to feel better while browsing activity feed.

Similar addon is also present on Chrome browser.
Say a profile pic is too creepy,
Or too wannabe.
The URL of pic would be like:
Adding above URL with correct username and *.png to addon options will block all unwanted profile pics.
When applied to my profile, below entry in activity feed:
..will change to:
Now i feel better.
