Why would the government go after this? It has such a small user base. What about Drupal? Silverstripe? vBulletin? PHPbb? Wordpress? Blogger? If the government was out to censor they are going after the wrong people.

yea I thought that was just too convenient. Now the government can just send any tom, dick or Harry to encode some random "spy" message on a website abd shut it down.
Interesting, not something I had considered, but seems possible, If the feds had some motive to shut down a website I suppose they could do the above.
It immensely frustrates intelligence and law enforcement agencies when an investigation leads to "coded" messages posted online and they are unable to identify and locate either the sources of the messages or especially the intended recipients among thousands of users.

I dont understand why they would use blogs/internet postings.
Why post this piece of spy information on a public posting..
why not create 2x hotmail accounts.
type up some bogus bs story about your holiday in moscow.
then add 10 pictures, with 1 of them being encrypted.
