So I wouldn't accidentally waste time replying to them. What's the point if they can't even see it?

While ultimately a person might get the hint and realize they're blocked anyways, this only expedites the process. Which can be troublesome if the person being blocked has a habit of harassing the user - makes it clear to them that they can just get on a different account much sooner. In a sense, then, it feels like such an indicator would somewhat defeat the purpose of blocking.

Pretty much that. The situation would work out similar to this:

UserA: *ignores UserB*
UserB: *sees notification*
UserB: it’s pretty much open season on trolling UserA because he/she can’t see me.

I was thinking more in terms of UserB trying to directly contact/antagonize UserA (ergo the alt account angle), but this too.

expecting this logic from your users to the point of full acceptance is exactly why this entire forum is such a trashfire

There is more to a forum than 1 on 1.

When you make a reply it should primarily be to the benefit of all readers. Therefore even if the Blocker won't see it, everyone else will, then that should be good enough.

The admins have stated numerous times over the years that this is never going to happen. It's not your business if someone is choosing to block you.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.
