Try it, you will get a connection timeout:

$ curl --connect-timeout 60 https://mail.google.com/
curl: (28) SSL connection timeout

The same applies for Twitter, Facebook... Much more efficient than
DNS/IP blocking!

Because searching for a bytestring in payload generates so much less load than just overriding a DNS result at the 
recursive server (that users are forced to issue queries to) or a simply drop SYNs based on IP header value that 
routers/firewalls are optimized for...

I think you forgot your coffee this morning.  It's not just for aliens you know.
