Hiding ignored users' posts when they're quoted

The ignore feature would be greatly enhanced by also hiding ignored users' posts when they're quoted.

Sure, but this has to be a very low probability event, certainly not really worth the hassle required on the backend.

How often does someone amplify a post (by quoting it) that is hurtful or insensitive? I'm guessing "almost never", but I could be wrong.

I put users on the ignore list because they spew absolutely ignorant garbage. These trolls always manage to get at least one well-meaning BF poster to respond in always futile attempts to correct them.

You must spend time in the "Advocacy & Safety" subforum

Whenever I click into that, I have to completely let go of the concept of "giving a damn", otherwise it's a recipe for disaster.

We've been asked about this before and have been told that the forum software doesn't, and won't support it.
