A couple things I don't like about it that I don't know how people can stand:
No option to disable "other users typing" or prevent your own typing from showing this to other users.
Blocking someone puts a giant "1 MESSAGE BLOCKED" line in chat, basically reminding you that you're ignoring someone, every time they write. Petition to change this "feature" has 1300 votes and 310 comments here: https://feedback.discordapp.com/forums/326712-discord-dream-land/suggestions/14929110-make-the-block-function-actually-block-people?page=1&per_page=20
Sure there exists custom CSS to hide these, but you have to install BetterDiscord or use the web app, both which have their own downsides. The dev team acknowledges that enough users want it, but refuse to add it on the grounds that it'll remove context and chat won't make sense.
Ignoring someone has done that to context since IRC days. It's a tradeoff, sometimes very much worth it given the Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory.
