In this case, the person can't be 100% sure you blocked them, as the message lists a couple of other possibilities. The user also won't get notified once you've blocked them. So, you don't need to worry about the person knowing for sure that you've blocked them. They might suspect it, but Discord won't notify them.

If the situation between you and the other user escalates somehow, you might want to think about reporting the account to Discord.

What Happens if You Block Someone on Discord?

A few things occur after blocking someone on Discord. First, they'll be removed from your friends' list, their messages to you will disappear, and if you're in a Discord server together, their messages will be hidden. They will no longer be able to send you messages, call you, ping you, or notify you by mentioning your username in a server.

If you want to see someone's messages on a server that you have blocked, you can select the Show message option to have it displayed. On the mobile app, you can go to the Blocked Messages section.

Also, although you won't be able to see a blocked user's messages on a server, they will still be able to see yours.

    No. When you block someone, they will appear offline to you, but they can still see your online status unless they also block you.

    Type two vertical bars (||) before and after the text you want to hide. For example, when you type ||Hello world|| the text will be blocked out and readers must select it to read the message.
