Braces around single line commands. Needed or not?

Survey period: 12 Feb 2018 to 19 Feb 2018

It's just about the braces. Not about whether the leading brace should or should not be on the same line as the conditional. One war at a time.

{} are called braces, not brackets. Brackets are these things: ()

Anyway ... I prefer a language where they're not needed at all!
VB
If condition Then  ...do something
