heh? I'm sure you'll find the government intercepting plain old post too
now, on the premise of national security.
Anyhow, all they are doing is banning encryption. Everywhere. Including in

But they don't know that. And as far as DMCA style laws go, if you use
encryption, you have something to cover up. Therefore you're a criminal. Or
some equally insane logic.
there was some discussion on the lbw list about a mailing list manager with
integrated GPG support. So you send an encrypted mail to the list, which
decrypts the key, and then encodes the key with the private key of each
person it sends the message to (taking advantage of the fact that PGP just
encodes the message with a symmetric key, and then encrypts that key at the
end of the message with the private key of the individual (that's what they
said anyway)). They had only found patches for the qmail based ezmlm.
