Fixed When canIgnoreUser returns false, a user can't be unignored

Affected version

If \XF\Entity\User::canIgnoreUser returns false, but the user is ignored; that user can not be taken off a user's ignore list.

Are you sure? The \XF\Pub\Controller\Member::actionIgnore checks whether the user is currently being ignored before checking the canIgnoreUser method.

The unignore button is only rendered if canIgnoreUser returns true, that is templating removes the display option

Yeah I think the logic is wrong here. I think in XF 1.5 it's if is ignored / show unignore button / else if can ignore / show ignore button clearly in a mood today where writing pseudo-code is more palatable than writing real code 🤔

My workaround for my live site is to just do isIgnoring || canIgnoreUser and just let them tank the "you can't ignore" error message if they unignore someone then try to ignore them again. Quick too :p
