Note: blocking people from Mastodon, in addition to sending the same message that is being misinterpreted by Mastodon, also sends a Block activity, which, in Mastodon at least, makes the recipient unfollow the sender

so, soft-blocks (blocking then unblocking) was unaffected by the bug, and you can still soft-block your former followers if you remember them
