IMHO this case is different.
Operational measuers, such as blocking spammers, viruses, or DoS
attacks are fine. But blocking encryption is not operational, in
fact, contrary to their notice it decreases security. It infringes
on civil rights.
What's the point of discussing government policies about strong
crytography and possible restrictions thereof if it is really so
simple to prevent people from using cryptography (in a convenient way)
I repeat, this must not be allowed to happen. One would think that
telecom and network operators knew better, but maybe they are under
pressure by misguided (or ultra right-wing) politicians.
