Just wondering if this would be possible to implement here:

On some other sites and forums, if you ignore a user, their posts don't disappear completely, instead their contents get hidden. If one so desires, it is possible to click on the specific post to reveal it.

I think it would be an excellent idea to try and implement something to that effect on this site, especially because the current system makes it so entire post trees get the axe if you put someone on ignore.

It would also mean less hassle if you want to read something by a user you ignored.

What say you?
