The IDEA proposed:
Create a "text block". The symbol marking does not matter; it could be anything available, Discord users would get acclimated to it.
Features users may find helpful, are Basic text modifications like Font [Color, Bold/Underline/Italic, Size]; WYSIWYG support; and other advanced RTF features such as Text Alignment, Lists, Tables, etc.
Up until today, a lot of users on Discord formatted their special messages and/or channels with code block (see example at the end).
The change to the word wrap setting, although understandable for its intended purpose, now raises a problem after users became accustomed to it. Essentially, it resolves one problem and creates another due to the length of time Discord allowed it to be available in its previous form.
Example of the NEW Discord Code Block Format as of November 9, 2019 (a single line with a scroll bar):

UPDATE (November 18, 2019):
It seems that the word-wrap feature has returned.

I hope you're still considering the idea of TWO code blocks for both types of users.
Choices and options are ALWAYS COOL!!
