"likes received count" includes those received through PM too


I just noticed that the “likes received count” includes those received through PM too.
I am going to enable the user-directory.
This way, users will be able to see who has got more likes etc.

But the current “likes-received-count” = “likes received in public” + “likes received through PM”

Anyone know how to make it “likes-received-count” = “likes-received-just-through-public-posts”

Reason I’m doing this: There are a few users in my site, who tricks the system by liking each others posts through PM to increase their “likes-count”

This is correct. I would advise those users to desist.
