ability to show public post comment to friends only

ability to show public post comment to friends only

Short, concise description of the idea
to help keep more journals open, yet comply with new laws.

Full description of the idea
Right now I can allow commenting to all, to friends or to none, and once comment is made I can either show it by default, pre-screen it or hide it, but it would be useful to allow all to comment, yet show comments only to friends.

An ordered list of benefits
  • In the light of new laws in Russia, a journal can be blocked and owner fined if there are "bad" comments and owner is not reacting. If entry itself is clean and does not have to be hidden, the owner has to either pre-screen all the comments, future and past, it's not good, since the comments could be good, but not good for the new law.
    the ability to show all comments only to friends can solve this.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • the nuance is when comment is left by non-friend, it's visible to friends and they can answer, yet commenter can't even see that.
  • Post a new comment
