And I thought isk was just joking around, too?
Although, if I had to send secret messages to someone, burying them in what
_looks like_ Asian language spam sent to a moderate-sized English
language technical mailing list/newsgroup would be well worth considering.
And the middle east is not the only part of Asia where terrorists are
operating. Topic came up on one of the talk shows my wife listens to, things
that one usually thinks of as yellow press, about North Korean connections
to Al Qaeda.
Barry's comments are not really as much of a joke as he may have intended.
