I have always wondered why academics involved in counter-terrorism publish papers describing how (to take one example) they calculate interconnectivity in terrorist networks. Its not too hard to see that someone might study said papers and then adjust behaviour to game the algorithms. Equally if you think of some new means of killing many people, why publish it to show how clever you are? Ever heard of putting ideas in to people’s heads? This example (hat tip to Sonja) illustrates my point.
