Aaaah - gotcha.  Of course, to do that they'd have to hit LJ every time 
someone connected to them and say "Is this person AndrewDucker?"  "How 
about this one?" "This one???", which would be possible if we don't have 
  logs of what requested that ID.

But then, if I was worried about that, I could turn the functionality 
back off again.

Personally, I'm the kind of person that uses my real name as my identity 
everywhere.  I can understand some people _don't_ do that, but I'm happy 
to do that, and I'd rather not have to go through an authorisation 
process when I don't have to.
