Question about foes/ignored forum users

When scrolling over topic names, and seeing the first/last post, I can still see the posts of people I have ignored as long as they have posted last, and this probably goes for first-posters too, if that makes sense
Is there any way to get this fixed? The forum only very minimally lets you ignore people, so I'd really like seeing this fixed, at least

I THINK someone else pointed this out before
and if my memory serves right i think the way the forums are (coded wise?) or something with the forums,
nothing can be done about how the forums "hide" ignored users/foes???

i apologize if this is wrong lemme try to find that topic
i dunno if its this topic but???

We've been researching ways to 'fix' this feature, unfortunately, there aren't a lot of options out there for extensions. As it is, the Foe feature, as described in the change logs for phpBB "If you add a user to your foes list, any posts they make will be hidden by default."

There are ways to block the user from sending you PMs:
1. Click on the private messages link in the header.
2. Click "Rules, folders & settings" on the side.
3. In the "add new rule" box, select "sender"
4. Click "Next"
5. Select "is foe"
6. Click "next"
7. Select "delete message"
We're still looking around for mods to further hide posts, but as of right now, we haven't found a reliable one.
