I don’t buy the “rabbit hole” excuse. Other forums have solved this problem simply: keep the muted/blocked user’s posts/threads but hide all of their text. Some forums even treat muted/blocked users’ posts/threads with spoiler tags.

If you feel it would be an easy task, you should write a plugin. Not many want this as a feature, but there have been a few and they should appreciate it.

You can do this with a local CSS customization:

  overflow-y: scroll;
  opacity: 0.2;
