If you silence an instance in the Moderation interface, will your members still see boosts of toots from that domain?

Like if I silence instance A, and someone from instance B boosts someone from instance A, will we see it in our timelines if we don't follow the boosted account?

The UI says, "Silence will make the account's posts invisible to anyone who isn't following them." Which sounds like it *would* apply to boosts.

@annika I think the answer is yes, but don't quote me on that

I'm fairly sure it is at least that way for *personal* blocks, etc. Not sure about instance-level

@annika Silences don't interefere with home timelines. So they doesn't apply to boosts.
