**no, its not, maybe a stock formula for blocks is OK as long as it keeps the time down, but maybe where the variable of safety and kindness, and *education*esp is, is in giving the poster more opportunities for rephrases, apologies etc BEFORE a block even occurs. I think a PBC etc from a long time ago has little bearing on present day doings. But if a PBC within the actual thread is ignored then to me that is a very obvo case for a block.
I think with a greater use of PBC's that there will be more learning and less fear. Esp once people realize that a PBC DOESN'T mean a block is gonna allasudden unexpectedly leap out of nowhere and 'get' them, which is unfortunately the way it is now. I think thats partly why people get upset at PBC's, cuz they get afraid.

Its not good to have someone, eg my kids, behave just cuz they are blindly terrified of me...

**WOW. Nicely said :-)

**I hope so.
I honestly have no idea of what to make of you Bob, I really don't...
And thats a concern to me.
