>>> I don't mean to rubbish autoblocks but they're not a cure for all ills.

I agree with your assessment Kierani that inexperience was the dominant factor in these examples, and the many other examples I could dig up. But I fail to see how an autoblock could have hurt in these situations, and it could have helped.

I don't think that autoblocks are a panacea. I don't think they are a substitute for experience.

My point boils down to this: weird sh*t happens when abseiling, and (correctly implemented) autoblocks can help to mitigate the consequences of that weird sh*t. Obviously experience is incredibly valuable in avoiding or dealing with that weird sh*t too. I prefer to use both.
