But if friends already started a blog not on WordPress then friends should help friends migrate to WordPress using import plugins for self-hosted WordPress blogs, or the “Tools – Import” menu for WordPress.com blogs… Provided that you do have friends.

In fact, if you look at capabilities.php you’ll see that WordPress adds the “exist” capability after applying the filters to the original list of capabilities for the user, so it’s difficult to even hi-jack. Some might think the capability is useless but I think otherwise.
Many plugins nowadays, give you filterable capabilities for certain actions, like Regenerate Thumbnails. If I’d like everyone to be able to regenerate thumbnails on my blog, I’d filter that capability to exist. The “read” capability is very similar, but users are not allowed to “read” on private blogs, while they’re still allowed to “exist” :)

Has anyone got a spare ticket to WordCamp San Francisco?
