Community Membership Data

Hey all, I'm working on doing some research with LJ community membership data. For communities with 1000+ members, FOAF data is incomplete and the Community Info page has a link to the directory, which I know is generally off-limits for scraping (not that I'd want to write the code to scape it anyway). Anyone have any suggestions for how I can get the full list of community members?

Also, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to get 'member of' data w/o scaping User/Community Info pages... That data's not in FOAF or in the Friend-Data (fdata.bml) outputs. Do I just scrape the info page, or am I overlooking something?

Thanks much.
