Good stuff!

It's clear that they had a person look at the topic and decide on a way
to block it -- accepting some collateral damage and making a guess about
how many unhappy people it would produce. They benefited from the fact
that the customers behind this Cyberoam weren't an entire country, meaning
they were betting that a low collateral damage was not many people at all.

Do we know anything about how they decided to detect obfs4 (and what
collateral damage they decided was acceptable there)?
