Re: No one planned to ban encryption
In my personal view - yes. Because there is the chance that someone (or some number of someone-s) may take the comment at face value, and use it to justify the comment's apparent point.
I would rather, and again this is only a personal view, make a potentially unnecessary comment about such a point than keep silent - and wake one day to find it has somehow migrated into Truth.
Of course, I'm an Idiot...
