From the FAQ:

"Cryptograms have been used as a means of protecting sensitive information for thousands of years, though today computers and more advanced cryptographical methods have made simple substitution cyphers much less practical. Still, they live on in newspapers and puzzle books as a popular form of brain exercise."

Are cryptograms like the ones on this site still practical for protecting information after all?
