I have been intending to make such a setup for a while.

Regarding cryptography - It was short-term enough that I didn't think it would be terrible. Within the same day, when I was already intending to claim, all it did was guarantee that I didn't change my claim after hearing anyone else's.

I was screwing around because I had a crappy day at work. I don't like the effects cryptology has on games either. But in this case I figured it was pretty harmless. (I never actually expected anyone to care)

I don't think badly of you at all for doing it - a) there was no rule, or even an implication of a rule, against it and b) you did it in a very non-game breaking way.  However it would be quite possible to gamebreak hard using that technique (you'd get everyone to crypto-claim at the start, thus preventing mafia from fakeclaiming), so I think there need to be rules against it in future.

...I think it could be an interesting facet of a game that was planned around it.

But yeah, it should otherwise be universally banned. I will definitely stomp on it if I see anybody trying it.

...but I don't think it should be a problem. This stuff arises when people start focusing too much on "optimal play", and that really has nothing to do with the reasons people play this game.
