Ignore users + their quotes too

Hi,
I'd like a mod that advances the ignore feature by hiding quoted posts by the ignored users too.
Some members on my forum are complaining that they still can see the posts by those user when others quote them.
I'm thinking it could be difficult to detect the quote, for instance if the ignored user changed his name? :-\
What are you guys thinking?

I could see that fast becoming quite a resource hog, if it really had to match each and every quote to first make sure if they are from a member, and then if that member is on someone's ignore list...

Don't allow users to change their name for starters. You can also see if somebody changed their name by comparing IP Addresses in ACP when you look up the new name. The Ignore feature isn't going to change. There is a global ignore mod which you can configure to do whatever you want to the member. It's a paid mod though.

this...   even on top of how complicated this would be (having to pre-parse every single post as it loads is not simple to begin with -- then actually doing it will kill your server in any thread with more than 2 or 3 replies)
