Counterpoint: /bin/ls lists the names of directories not owned by the user it's running as whose access control mode is 0700 (user rwx, all others forbidden).
Which is perfectly correct behavior according to the way UNIX permissions are defined. The ability to list names in a directory is controlled only by the r bit of the directory itself.
