You could try adding your weight to the fixing of this bug that I
reported six years ago.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=799040

If fixed that would let the "ignore subthread" filter work correctly and
thus ignore all the replies to blacklisted posts too. I wouldn't hold my
breath though - no-one seems interested in what I consider to be the
most major bug in Thunderbird.

Alternatively, it works fine in 40tude Dialog - to which I resort from
time to time when it all gets too annoying for me.
