Hide banned users activity

Title
Hide banned users activity

Short, concise description of the idea
Create an option to hide all postings and comments of the banned users from those who banned them

Full description of the idea
I think many users (including me of course) would like the annoying people whom we banned to disappear completely from our virtual world - i.e., not to see their postings and comments in ANY journal, and to see "This user is banned" instead. Just like disqus.com does, for example (it does not display even the names of the banned ones). This feature should be very easy to implement and can be regulated by a checkbox like "Hide banned users activity" in Settings.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Will make LJ much more comfortable place where everyone can completely protect himself from annoying people and their texts. Those who still want to see what the people they have banned are writing will have that option, too, so everyone will benefit, except for those who like to annoy others.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I don't see any.
