Opinion on blocking shots with your body

So I'm a new player to hockey, I have roughly 15-20 games experience, and was wondering what the general consensus is on blocking shots with your body. Specifically, when a player slides on their side to block the puck in front of the goal.

I ask because I see it done, both in lower tier games, like ECHL, but also in NHL games, and then on the other end, I hear negative comments about someone being a "diver." I haven't yet done it (I play D a lot in my novice league) because I'm not sure if it's something that's frowned upon.
