You need to put people you don't want to see your posts into the acquaintances list and make sure that you are posting to the following list:

enter image description here

If you post to any of the other lists they'll be able to see and comment on things that you post.

Keep in mind also that if you're currently looking at a custom or default list (like Close Friends or your work list) that if those people are in those lists they'll be able to see those posts.
