Blocked numbers

So a few years ago when I would block a number and that number tried to text me I wouldn't know about but they would know they were blocked. Now days if I block a number verizon sends me a goofy message and the blocked party thinks the text went through. So explain to me the point of blocking now? My god verizon just can't help but mess things up. Ridiculous! So My question is why did verizon make this worthless change? I DONT WANT TO KNOW THAT THEY TEXTED ME AND I WANT THEM TO KNOW THEY'VE BEEN BLOCKED.  Verizon you're useless!
