how to disable "User send a message" in the Notification popup in MeMenu

I was looking for a way, and still not found, to disable the "X-User send a message" in the Notification flyout of the Memenu.
All other comments must stay intact.
I know it is parsed in the file applications/dashboard/views/activity/popin.php.
But all other comments are also parsed there. How can i distinguish and filter the "X send a message" from the other comments in the Notifications flyout?

    You could hook into the activity model, look for the sent message activity type, and "handle" the activity by throwing a validation error.

    public function activityModel_beforeSave_handler($sender) {
      $activity =& $sender->EventArguments['Activity'];
      if($activity['RecordType'] == 'Conversation') {

    Awesome solution @hgtonight
    I added the public function above in the PM plugin ( for me most logical to put it in that plugin) and i do not see anymore
    the "send a message" line. Only in the Inbox. And that was exactly what i was trying to achieve. Great solution. Thanks!
