How can I best manipulate the feed content.

Hi: Activity plus defaults to "new registrations" at page load. This is a problem as most new registrations are mostly buddy press spam. We hired a developer to remove all new registrations from showing in the feeds and set the default page to "Updates". Problem is now, at page load there isn't much or sometimes any content in the feed and we need to select a "load more" button to view content.

How can we ensure content shows at page load and not this "Load More" button?

Any advise would be most appreciated.
