These are tracked by the server. The use case is for me to know how
often "crazy stalker person" is trying to send me messages. 

For example, let's say Romeo puts on a block on Juliet. She keeps trying
to get hold of him, and sends him 1500 messages over the course of two

Romeo might find this information useful. Client side, there's no
difference really - just some different visual presentation. Server
side, it would just have to keep track of how often a block is hit.
