    Yep, thats why it would be good to have a option where i can decide if i wanna see that they left a message or not. Im surprised that the topic came up months ago and we still dont have this simple option.

    I agree. It partially defeats the point when you can still see that they left a message, although at the same time I can see why others would still like to know that without seeing the actual content.

    It's not possible the way Discord is structured. The only way to clear an unread notification is with an ACK (short for ACKnowledgement), which is a way of saying "I read this". If we were to ack when someone you blocked sends a messages, this does a bunch of bad stuff. The most important ones are: it hammers our service with requests and causes performance issues and the other is you can't ack specific messages. It's all or nothing. So if your best friend in the world goes "Hey, I have some free steam keys for the best game of all times, who wants one?" and the guy you blocked goes "I do!", you never see the notification and miss out on your free game.
    The block system is the best that can be done with how Discord's chat is set up.
