Select the @Joe context, pull up the Context inspector, and turn off "Allows next actions". Now you won't see any actions assigned to the @Joe context.

I should note that that's not how I tend to work, myself: instead, I put a task in my Agenda:Joe context (which does allow next actions) so that I can ask Joe about it the next time I see him (possibly with a future start date so I don't bug him prematurely). But just because that's how I do it doesn't mean it's how you should!
