Private Forums tags "bleed through" to public site

Description

Erich73 advised me to post this here as a bug:

One of my users noticed that when she tagged a topic in a private forum, the tags nevertheless get displayed in the public tag cloud. I can think of several situations where this is potentially problematic, but in this case, it was a private discussion among site moderators about a problematic user, and the post was tagged with the user in question.

Any fix for this would be complicated and hackish at best. Those tags are pulled more or less directly out of bbPress, which doesn't know anything about the privacy levels of the BP groups corresponding to bbPress forums. So we'd have to filter the bbPress query, and there are not really good filters in place to allow that to happen. And the version of BackPress that bbPress uses for taxonomy stuff doesn't easily allow the kind of filtering that we really need. Moreover, the whole thing is made even more complicated by the fact that some tags are used by both public and private groups, so it's not as simple as excluding tags that have been used in private groups.

I'm going to punt this to 1.4 in the hopes that the plugin version of bbPress has a better way of handling these issues.
