So, do you disagree with your own answers?
@aviophile No, the answers were irrelevant to the point he was trying to make.
Twas about reactive programming in Java (yeah, a mess, but necessary in this case unfortunately) and the fact block() should never be used in the event loop. This is of course true, and my answers stated so - but the clincher here is that you *can* sensibly block on a thread that's *not* on the event loop (for example if you're using a library that's not non-blocking, or you're migrating gradually to a reactive stack.) Trying to get people to see those nuances though isn't easy... It's just a knee jerk reaction 🤔
