"Suggested posts" are something you'll get on "low engagement" accounts. They "technically" aren't sponsored posts or "special" posts, so they don't hit any of the usual places I patch. I was seeing them for a while and was trying to get rid of them, but then I started having trouble reproducing them, which makes this a lot more difficult... maybe it is something I can address in the future. Startup life is still in "crazy mode" but I can get some time here and there.
That said, I've been testing out a more patched version of Messenger for the past few weeks. It still only tries to block ads in the inbox, but the main thing I am trying to fix is the (utterly obnoxious) update nags, which I have mentioned in some previous posts. I have an experimental patch for them, which seems to have been working for the past few weeks. So, either I managed to fix the nags, or they just haven't started popping up yet. But we won't know until we try
Here's the new Messenger APK:
(I'll go update the top post, too).
Anyway, as always, have fun and good luck!
