    i think it need to have 3 option for user in setting, after block an user
    1.same as now, show "blocked message"
    2.show only a red line, or something really small things
    3.completely not show anything from blocked user
    and can choose the option for different user we blocked
    such as, block userC and use option 1, block userF but use option 3 for this user

    I'm also here to voice my disappointment with non-blocking function

    This is half-way done. If i chose to block someone I don't mean "show me what they are saying under a veil"

    You even get message pings by these people. Discord is the leading gaming platform, trumping everything, but how do we not have a working ignore list yet?

    (i stole this from someone who i very much agree with) 

    It would be nice if the block function actually prevented them from looking at your profile or look back at old messages in PM's from you. IMO having a block function should mean they cant see anything you do and post and you can't see theirs. It would be very beneficial if they had that on the discord app to where blocked users can't see anything you make or post and likewise to prevent stress, stalking, and further harassment. 

    I know people can block evade as well, that will always be a problem, but this would be a better solution to the blocking issues because when people see the message from blocked user thing well most are tempted to click it cause they get curious to what it says. If taken away most will not know what the other says and continue as is without problem.

    Seriously, discord is asking 100 quid for a year of premium and then they can't even impliment a feature every chatting program ever has? And the worst part is the smooth brains who actually pay that money spam every group chat with ther dumb emotes and if you block them you have tons of "blocked message" messages and to top it all off you even get a notification for those blocked messages.

    We can close their DM. just right click on the blocked user's profile and press 'close DM' so everything from them will disappear. or are you talking bout if it's in a server? sorry if i'm wrong

    Yeah this needs to be changed big time. If I block someone, not ONLY should I see no sign of them, but they should see no sign of ME in any server that I am not a mod in. No interaction. No opportunity for interaction. Don't empower stalkers with opportunities to harass. I should not have to leave a server just because of one person.

    I never needed to block anyone in Discord before. But now I've decided to do so for a first time, assuming that they will be gone from my eyes, as well as my activity will be hidden for them. Because that's what you expect when 'blocking' someone. Was surprised to find out that it's not the case. Please rework it ASAP.

    As said Discord is the leading game related chat service- And they know it. They know that most won't leave over this so they have little incentive to fix the issue instead of finding new ways to monetize the platform. IE: Money talks.

    Completely disappear - and please please hide webhooks that people use! All of it. If they typed it, make sure I can't see it, and vice versa, please. It's really wild that this hasn't been implemented yet.

    I’m dealing with a message spammer and even if I block them and change my username, they’ll be able to find me again since they’ll still have access to old messages and be able to SEE EVERYTHING that I type in our shared servers. This is messed up and does absolutely nothing for someone trying to avoid been seen by a particular person.
    Discord, please change this... there’s nothing the mods of our mutual servers can do.

    Also, closing a DM doesn’t delete the conversation for the other person. They can still see all your messages unless you go back and individually delete all of yours.

    This issue seriously needs to be rectified. Almost all social media platforms have an option to block users and hide your content from them. It prevents stalking, harassment, and toxicity. PLEASE Discord people have been asking over 2 years for this change. Why the delay?

    This definitely needs to be fixed. Blocking as it currently stands doesn't do anything bar thinly hiding messages from the person you're trying to block. They can still view anything you post in mutual servers and antagonize you by replying to it anyway. Sure it shows up as "1 blocked message" but is that really desirable? Whoever I block, their entire online existence should be removed from my life, and vice versa they should not be able to see anything that I say or share. This is a ridiculous flaw in discord's blocking system.

    This has gone on so long and needs to fixed. At this point it's appalling that Discord hasn't given any attention to this issue. I expect to never see a blocked users name, profile, messages etc ever after I block them. I want to forget their existence and erase mine from their discord. Not doing so enables harassment, stalkers, and violent or toxic people. I hate feeling like I want to leave a discord server over ONE person just to prioritize my mental health. Please fix this, it is so frustrating.

    They need to rename the block function to what it actually does, which is just hide the user's messages.

    Hey if they want to rename it to "Hide Messages", that's fine.

    Anyway, can we get a prioritization on a feature to block a user, or nah?

    Please make this possible. I had to leave a community I’ve been apart of for a very long time because of the non-functioning “block” feature. I don’t want him to see what I say, and I don’t want to see any traces of his activity. It’s infuriating.

    There are multiple threads running about this topic and none of the ones I've found show any of the signs that someone at discord has even read them, let alone said something like "this isn't the right forum" or marking the thread as "won't fix".

     

    I've starting @mentioning their twitter anytime they tweet something even remotely tangential. It's clear to me that more noise needs made, and that there is nobody listening here.

    Ping them on twitter, start raising it on other social media venues.

    As a platform for customer feedback, feature requests and the like, this site is apparently useless.

    Has there been any update on bringing this feature to the application?

    Get it together discord, if I block someone they should not be able to see my messages, it's ridiculous you don't support that basic functionality

    How many years does it take to just NOT SHOW some special thing on the screen?

    This has frustrated me forever. I dont want people to see my messages and I dont want to see theirs. I dont want a reminder that they're talking. At times I just see almost a page of blocked from people who I dont want to hear the opinion of. It's stupid that this woks like this

    ISTG at this point I'm aiming for getting a job at Discord, fixing this, and then quitting.

    This is the most requested feature. Please please bring it to discord.

    Bump.

    Blocking on discord is not actual blocking. It's pretty much like spoilering.

    Please staff, add a basic block feature. It's essential for programs like these.
