If you don't want to get personal reminders from BirthdayBot about your teammates' bdays, you can disable them in the Personal settings. Just send a direct message to BirthdayBot with settings and hit Disable Weekly, Disable Day-Before, Disable Same Day.
Having done that, you will only see the birthday hoopla in the #channel.
