If you mute a user you still get all of their comments in your notifications including the full text of their comments in your notifications but you can't see their comment from your original post in order to report it or delete it. Muted users shouldn't show up in notifications

I muted a user who left a hostile rehost, and I am now getting phantom notifications everything's someone interacts with their share. The number shows I have new notifications but there's nothing on the list when I check them.
