I understand that the restricted list generally keeps a specific person from viewing your status updates that are not public. But I have a question about if it is possible to override restricted status in the following ways:
Example, I associate with John Doe in the gym and do not want him to see my general updates to friends regarding where I am or what I am doing. So I add him to the restricted list. But I also have a list for Gym Friends for training discussions and I would like him to be a part of those discussions, so I add him to my Gym Friends list too. Now, when I post to my Gym Friends list, does John Doe see it or does he not? Which list plays trump? Also, will I still be able to message John Doe directly?
