Since I have no idea what's happening with the WDYW threads I'm just
doing this.

I watched the 2-hour NatGeo special 'North Korea: Dark Secrets'
(recorded). Minor sensationalism, it basically covered the DPRK's
history, the cult of personality towards the dynasty, their nuclear
weapons program (started almost as soon as the country was founded!) and
recent developments. Some interesting bits, like the DPRK is basically
a Mafia-style criminal organization operating as a nation-state
(wondered how North Korea could afford their weapons program? Its
because they counterfeit anything and everything they can; money,
cigarettes, liquor, etc. Also their cyber-warfare unit spends much of
their time trying to hack banks, install ransom ware, etc.); in the
DPRK's version of history the second Jung (father of the current Great
Leader) is credited with single-handily fighting the entire Japanese
occupation force and throwing Japan out of Korea in 1945 (never mind
that he was 4 years old at the time). My favorite tidbit was the
psychologist/neurologist who concluded that the current negotiations
were being carried out by a pair of narcissistic adolescents. ("Fake
news!" "Shaddup Anim.") :)

The night before I watched three other one hour NatGeo pieces on the
DPRK (also recorded). These were more like direct investigative
journalism pieces and painted similarly bleak pictures of the DPRK.

My take away from all of this is North Korea has no intention of
honoring any agreement they make. They never have honored any agreement
they've made. They are experts at playing the world, the West
especially, with threats and promises. China is not going to try to
reign North Korea in because they _want_ North Korea as a buffer between
their border and US forces. A big thing is the conclusion that all the
economic sanctions in the world aren't going to change anything because
the DPRK doesn't WANT contact or interaction with the rest of the world.
Cutting off trade with a country that doesn't want to trade with
anyone isn't a threat. And it seems like the only current option for
ending the threat they are is to turn the entire northern half of the
peninsula into a glow in the dark parking lot. And the cost of that is
too high.

I'm seeing WDYW threads every day, as always, including Tuesday the
12th. I'm just behind on the few things that I'm watching at the moment
and have those threads flagged and ignored at the moment.

David Barnett is also having trouble seeing "WDYW?" threads as well.

I have no idea what's going on here.

Well, Obveeus is MIA, and UBI's having some posting issues as far as the
Usenet is concerned. He's on RAT-Facebook though.

And I'm not watching anything but retro so I haven't started any, not
that I do that often.

Ian should probably add this task to his list. Oh, wait.

DB's problem sounded like it was isolated to something hinky on his end.

DT, do you have Ubi universally killfiled? (A lot of folks do due to the
separate political stuff, so it's not an unheard-of thing.) If so, you
might want to modify the filter in order to make an exception for WDYW
threads. Because he's still creating them and, in the absence of
Obveeus, his are the only ones that we're likely to get at the moment.

I might have Ubi KF'd. Don't really feel like taking the time to check
since if I do I wouldn't be able to except the WDYW posts. I'm not that
worried about it, I can always make posts like the first one in this
thread if I want to. :P

Sure you can. I use T-bird, too, and it's easy. Just add the following
condition where appropriate:

Hey, it's USENET, so you can do pretty much anything you want to do. But
in the current case, you're being EVOL!!! with your subject-naming
convention and breaking my filter! (Even when someone is in my killfile,
I don't mind seeing them in the WDYW threads since they tend to stay
on-topic there.)

In my case no problem as the caps lock key is disabled.
So my posts are not all capitals when sent,
but for some reason are converted to all capitals later.
