Yeah, a place I've done this is in writing switch statements in reducers. The extra scope also closes over any intermediate values you have so you don't have to coordinate variable names between blocks. I do this routinely for all switch statements all the time for this reason. The semantics are more useful and obvious with the braces.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
