You can INSERT new rows in a table that doesn't have free blocks in the middle of the datafile, at the same time other threads are reading from the table (concurrent insert). An free block can come from an update of a dynamic length row with much data to a row with less data or when deleting rows. When all free blocks are used up, all future inserts will be concurrent again. 

'An free block' = 'A free block'
