But why? I'm a registered user, entered a valid password. I don't try to 
list users or hack their data, I use the fully qualified JID to obtain the 
info that user wanted to publish himself.

It's not so important for this task, I just chech a "type" attr to be an 
"error" or a "result". But still any ideas how to do that on another way are
