I'd say it's the players' responsibility to know the blinds. I think you were the one who raised here. I think a good dealer should help prevent these kinds of things, but ultimately it's you who should know the blinds. If in doubt, you should ask the dealer.

You can tell the folks outright next time that in standard Hold 'Em, only the best 5 cards are playable in any one player's hand.
