Cyberspace - Online satire publisher The Spoof has begun encrypting bits of its website to make it harder for hackers and cyber spies to monitor the stories its readers are enjoying.
"We want our users to feel real secure," the virtual Editor explained, "especially ever since the Feds began plagiarising some of our best storylines and turning them into bona fide Jihadi intelligence."
Online media analysts say this is the first time major satire organization has made such a decision, one which could see the website exposed to zillions of nosey professional cryptologists (apart from that Brit who was found stark naked, stuffed into a holdall at a MI6 safe house in 2011).
Commenting on the radical move the head of the FBI said, "Plenty of intelligence agencies want to monitor this kind of information, especially the salacious tidbits about blondes with big tits."
