Yes, but blocking emotes when a player is silenced isn't a great
solution either.
emote waves his hands frantically at the beast sneaking up behind you!

would be a highly legit, role-playing type emote to use when silenced.

The important thing, as Nathan notes, is that it blocks spell casting.
There will always be other ways around communicating, no matter what
you do :P
