That would explain why I had such problems getting a SIM card during  
my recent trip to
Europe. I knew it was some sort of overreaction like that.
Your government learns too well from ours :)
The one good thing that came out of the whole mess was that it  
pointed out that the majority of
my SIM problems during the trip were political/bureaucratic and not  
due to an intrinsic problem with the FR.
