Exclude links to posts flagged as "abusive" from the Forum - Thread List widget

Using the 'Forum - Thread List' widget, currently if we "flag as spam/abusive" the post is still listed after thread list refresh. Is it possible to filter posts flagged as "abusive" from the list? I was unable to find a documented workaround or something that would resolve this by looking in the 'Forum - Thread List' (widget) > setquery.vm file. 

Background, we are currently seeing the flagged posts in the list and when we click the link a 403 status is returned.

Appreciated

  • Do the accounts that are flagging posts have the Site or Group "Moderate and Review Abuse" permission? If not, then a flag on a post doesn't necessarily hide it. To prevent abuse of the abuse system, as it were, calculations are done based on the number of flags and the standing of the users that flagged it before a post is hidden. This calculation is bypassed for anyone flagging it who has the aforementioned permission(s).
