My very first post on Metafilter (about N. Korea) was just deleted! Bummer.

I've read Metafilter daily for over a decade and I've been meaning to try my hand at a post. I've found myself hoping daily to find a meaningful post on the subject of N. Korea but coming up empty. I searched for previous (serious) posts on the subject and found none. Perfect! I'll be the guy.
My post was deleted because of this previous post
I'd argue that the previous post that covered the subject was more a "ha, ha, Kim Jog-Un is a loser" post than a serious analysis of an important subject. I haven't seen any good analysis posted on Metafilter about the situation, and the previous post had gone quiet for 3 days until my post was deleted.
Here's my deleted post (with a missing period).
I'm doing it wrong apparently. Enlighten me.
BTW-Cortex explained his decision a bit, but I don't want to pester him further. Seems his decision is final.
