Nourddine, list, I agree with you. Thank you for your wisdom. I too have been needlessly dragged through the coals on this list. It has been proven off-list that the bad mouthing I was given was totally misguided but, It matters not. The truth is , these actors have caused great harm to this list and some of it's members. People need to think before they post. I have never had a bad experience with any Moroccan. Only a few crack head Americans.
Love & Life
