Echo disables username mentions by blocked users. Often blocked users attempt to ping the blocking admin, or related users. If talk pages are being abused access is just revoked, however with the silent failure of echo many users may be unaware that the pings should be happening are not.

I've tested at test.wikipedia.org and mentions by a blocked user are being successfully sent.
I believe any mention-failure is due to the unrelated T78424: P4. Spike - Figure out causes of mention notification not being sent (missing pings), for which a fix is being sent out later today.
