I have discovered that by electing to ignore posts by a certain individual, in addition to no longer being subject to any posts by that individual, I can no longer see any threads started by that individual.

I noticed that as well. Thanks.

The site’s software is due for a major overhaul. It’s several versions behind. I suspect that many issues of this type will be fixed when I get around to upgrading. But no promises on when. It’s a major job requiring many hours of work, expensive, and likely to result in a period of downtime for the site.

And with your dissertation haunting you, we’ll wait.

I wouldn’t necessarily consider this an issue in need of fixing.  If you want to look at that thread you can still do so.  In the space where the link to the thread would be it says, on the far left, A topic is hidden because NAME is being ignored and all the way over on the right it says View / Hide and stop blocking NAME.  You click on the View / Hide and you can see the thread.

I agree with Faldage, however, this works only as long as the person you want to ignore has STARTED the thread.
