Just a thought..

I know this is not so important. But is there any desire, other then my own, to have the ability to combine the ways of searching for LJ's? Such as adding the most like search feature into the directory search as another variable, or adding multiple interest variables so that you can search for combinations of interests.

Security hole?

I spotted this when thinking about a support request. If a user chooses to hide their "Friends Of" list, it is still possible for paid users to access it via the directory by searching for Has Friend : User lists <username> as a friend. E.g. , http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=tinyjo&mode=full and http://www.livejournal.com/directory.bml?fr_user=tinyjo . Is this behaviour by design? If so, should there be a disclaimer in the edit info page about this?
