Ethically, I think there should at least be an option to filter these messages from the personal profile feed. Everyone should have a right to forget about encounters with negative people or take action to protect their own mental health above any beyond any platform functionality. If a person is encountering hate, abuse, or for any arbitrary reason, they should not be confronted with any form of reminder when they choose to remove the reference.
