Limit maximum visibility of local silenced users to unlisted #9583
I think this is a good way to treat this, to limit where their posts can reach. Though I agree it exposes that the user was silenced, and maybe plugging directly into federation code would be better. (but then from other instances they could have the same information, maybe, so 🤷🏽♂️)
In my instances I'm always a bit reticent to silence local users. It means I cannot see easily (without going to the admin interface) what they're posting anymore, but they keep posting. This brings the silencing closer to sandboxing, which I think it's what I would want for some cases.
