belaying seconds on a multipitch 13-Apr-2016 At 4:55:32 PM ambyeok
Re. that bottom right picture... you feel some tension hit the rope you would snap your hand back and lock it off. Perhaps not instantaneous but I reckon perfectly fine. Sure its poor form shown in the picture but I dont reckon anyone will die. But if he just moves his hand back a foot or so then hey no problem with belaying the second straight off the harness.

Also dont forget that you pretty much cant feed slack or let someone downclimb when on an autoblock, but you will be tempted to, so you will loosen up the rope, release the autoblock with one hand and faff around to feed some slack, all of which arent great if the second choose that moment to peel off. Point here is you can with alot of hassle setup your autoblock to safely feed slack but you wont cause its too much hassle.
