UAE warns BlackBerry poses social and security risks

the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority said in a statement issued on Sunday.

“As a result of how BlackBerry data is managed and stored, in their current form, certain BlackBerry applications allow people to misuse the service, causing serious social, judicial and national security repercussions.”

Here. Just different in degree but the same in kind from the controls other politicians impose. It’s not liberal (in the classic sense of the word).  Call it… progressive, reactionary, conservative.
