I generally am too, but I'm also the type of person who balances resources, costs, and how this will affect the overall user experience.

We've had this request one or two times, and while adding a table that links users and blocked users is easy, it does affect system performance due to our caching.

We could
  • do a custom query, right at the database level, for every user who has an active block list, in order to return just the messages that are viewable
  • get messages from the cache(s) as we do now, and simple mask out the items that are blocked.
The first option is the best, except it will kill performance.

The second is easy to implement, but if a user has blocked lots of people their pages could look pretty bad. The noise to signal ratio could make the experience a little rough.

An alternative is to get a page of messages from the cache, prune out the blocked messages, then keep requesting pages from the cache until we have a "full" page. Faster, better, messier for us, but doable.

But there's another issue with option #2 (and 2a). You'll be left with gaps in the thread view. You'll see responses that don't relate to a message you see. You'll see quotes of blocked messages, which can become a can of worms to hide, and relegates option 1 as the most practical solution.

Now having said all this, we get this request maybe once every few years. There are simply too many other things we'd like to add / fix / improve. If there was a clamouring demand we'd bump it up, but at this point it's not in our shortlist.
cheers
