If you want to see someone's posts but you don't want to see their boosts, there is an option for this on Mastodon.
Go to the person's profile, click on the "..." button and select "Hide boosts from" (Do this again if you want to see their boosts)
Their posts will remain visible to you, but their boosts will be hidden.
