Interestingly no mention of people using Pof on there!

It very specifically says

"Therefore all powders (chalk and resin) should be banned in Bleau ..."

Ah, I did miss it, it could do with explaining the problems posed by resin use as well though, however the rest of it does seem to be broadly in line with the BMC's Bouldering Commandments:

Seems reasonable - why the 'dislike'?

I think it's stronger and better in 3 areas

1) much clearer on the subject of cleaning shoes

"It is also very important to always use a scrap of doormat or a cloth to carefully clean the soles of your shoes before climbing on any boulders (wiping them on the crashpad is not enough)."

2) Actively discourages brushing

3) Forbids the use of loose chalk. "all powders (chalk and resin) should be banned in Bleau except when used in the smallest of quantities, enclosed within a cloth (eg. Chalk balls) and applied to the hands, never directly to the rock. Ideally, climbers should simply do without"
