Logging of pulls is arguably better done in the web server access log. 
You can disable logging of pulls on /_admin/settings .

The Journal is in my opinion currently not very useful. The whole 
concept should probably be rethought. One alternative could be to send 
all logging data to some logging service (such as ) 
message bus (such as ) or 
"data warehouse". We should also review whether we are logging exactly 
what is important and relevant.
