  To see threads in a folder that you've ignored in the past, go to the 
View menu -> Threads and check the "Ignored Threads".  As you've quite 
rightly pointed out, this isn't very discoverable at all, which is why 
Bryan has proposed that those messages be made visible in a "Muted 
Threads" subfolder.
