What does blocking a user do? -mostly solved-

Hey so I havent quite been able to figure out the specifics on certain features of the block/foe function, I've got a few questions:

Forum posts of users I've blocked are hidden until clicked (wish they were just hidden permanently but w/e), but can the users I've blocked see my posts at all? or is there no change from what they can see from me?

I'm also wondering if when pm's from blocked users are set to auto-delete, does the sender get something that tells them their message didn't send? or does nothing change and they're led to think that it went through?

And about blocking on the site, not the forums, is there a way to block someone from seeing all the comics that you've made, or do they have to all be blocked from each comic's settings individually?

I'm really not looking to hear people's opinions on blocking, just know what the feature does a little better, to assess whether or not it's worth potentially pissing someone off if the block function tells them "this user has blocked you" or similar

Your foes can still view your posts, and are not able to tell in any way that you've blocked them. As far as they can tell, you're just not responding to their posts.

I think they're led to think it went through. I'm not sure, but I think they get put into their Sent folder immediately without spending time in the Outbox, so a particularly attentive user might notice something's off.

There's no way to block anyone from viewing your comic at all (even if you could, they could just log out to view it), the best you can do is block them from commenting. The latter has to be done on a per-comic basis.
