Protect friend-of from directory searching

Protect friend-of from directory searching

Short, concise description of the idea
Fix security loophole by preventing directory searches of friends-of for people who want to hide their friends-of.

Full description of the idea
Currently it is possible to circumvent a user trying to hide friends-of by using the LJ directory. For example, search for who has "malathion" friended and you'll see my friends-of, even though I have hid them in my user info. It shouldn't be too hard to fix this.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Duh? =P
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • None.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • It would be nice if I could still search for my own friends-of, since I like the directory listing, but I would prefer that other users couldn't.
    Other users would simply get an error message of some kind.
