Firstly let me tell you that by default Discord has an integrated official bot known as Clyde Bot. The job of this bot is to notify users about any unresponsive actions that they performed.
If you try to message someone, who has blocked on discord, then you will get a reply from the Clyde Bot saying that -“Your message could not be delivered. This is usually because you don’t share a server with the recipient or the recipient is only accepting direct messages from friends.“
