I'm not sure how tit-for-tat will work. Secondly, how do you technically
identify the addresses being used by government; even if you block all
addresses assigned to .go.ke domains for example, you will be surprised
many government departments run their mail on yahoo, etc. Any attempt at
switching off government is just like throwing stones at a beehive. Also one has to take into account the impact on wananchi who rely
on government online services. This is a typical case of "there is a
problem, do something, anything. Because doing nothing you will be
damned". I prefer the CS suggestion of dialogue on such issues rather
than switching off government networks in retaliation.
