    I think that blocking is a soft-delete, so you can reenable the customer later on again, just in case you need to.
    Deleting - as a counterpart - means hard-delete, not restorable.
    From a user's point of view they're both the same. A user account must be present and active, otherwise you can't log in.
    I haven't checked in detail, but it should pretty much work that way.
