MirrororriM writes: An article at USA Today shows The Department of Homeland Security believes that "Blogging and message boards have played a substantial role in allowing communication among those who would do the United States harm," the department said in a recent notice. "I just can't envision a scenario where somebody posts to a message board, 'I'm getting ready to launch an IED at this location,' and the government will find that," said terrorism analyst Matt Devost.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
