How do you fetch a friend history (of people that have been unfriended)? [Dec. 20th, 2004|09:44 am]

I was looking at these two quizzes, the LJ stalker one and the friend-o-meter one. It seems they fetch the names of people I have friended in the past. Some of the people listed have never commented in my journal and aren't mentioned anywhere in it, leading me to believe this somehow fetches a friending history. How does it do it?

Just want to add that I'm not saying that anyone should do this, but am simply saying that it could be done. If they see a lot of user info requests coming from the same place in a short period of time, they might shut off access from the IP address.

A Perl script that did the above would probably put a serious load on their systems if it did the requests as quickly as it could, and would not be appreciated.
