RE: [Histonet] curious about soaking paraffin blocks.

From:"Kaliko, Bonnie"

We judge the amount of time on the ice by the tissue.  The paraffin
never comes into play.

Greetings All,
  I remember reading on here/archives that paraffin blocks should not be

soaked or kept on ice for too long--what is the reasoning behind this?  
I am just plain curious and still fairly new to the field.  I often 
leave blocks on for a long time and this seems to help or at least not
