Sorry for not getting back to you sooner regarding your PM of 17 Nov. It was filtered to my spam folder, I only found it today. All my recent submissions deal with the treatment of Palestinians at the hand of the civil and military Israeli authorities and the silence of the rest of the World. All the articles carry the names of their authors, dates and where they were filed and that goes to show how much you have read of these posts, they were not intended for flippant replies. I know most of the media has been got at and gagged by powerful lobbies.
Hey! Guess what, your latest post is a cut and paste of Robert Fisk from the Independent and so are many of your posts, at least I have read them and followed them to their sources and I do not think that pasting a link to a video clip of an idiot mocking his fellow citizens is helping to raise the position of Morocco. Call me sensitive or touchy if you will, but open your eyes and look around you. There are too many people putting us down we do need our own to give them a hand.
Try and watch ALMANAR TV from anywhere in the US. You are probably already aware of what I am referring to, but if not I must warn you that it is illegal and carries a 15 to 25 year prison sentence, now that’s what I call freedom of speech!
Since my posts are not the kind you what you want on your forum and I am not out to convert anyone, I have posted my last.

Answering to your questions:1/Almost all images in my website they have a hig
resolution:3000 by 2000.
2/I prefer to send the print,then the price will depend on how big is the print.


Salem : 2:15 pm    November 15, 2007 reply · ·
Adnan, has your beard grown up in this image since it was first displayed. I know you are an artist and you may have made hair grow up on your image face. I find it's better so, or was it just an illusion?.


Salem : 8:44 pm    November 14, 2007 reply · ·
Thanks Adnan, I think it's alright now. The feature is working. You're great.

Baba Salem


Salem : 3:25 pm    November 14, 2007 reply · ·

By the way, I wanted to come back to new feature "Private" and give you a feedback. I don't know if you have tested dropping a private message to someone. I did. I sent a message to myself with the mention "private" and went the other side to see the way I'll be receiving it. The result is yes. The system indicated somewhere on the toolbar that I had a private message. I clicked on the indication and the message was displayed. Everything was OK so far. But after having moved away from that place and came back again, the message wasn't there any more, and there was no way I could find it again. I think the message was hidden from me somewhere although I am logically the owner.

Now I have a suggestion. I agree with you that most dropped messages are meant to be public. No problem with that. It's however interesting to have the possibility to drop private messages to other members for the sake of privacy. We agree on that. Now, logically, if the place is basically public as it is right now, and you want to drop a private message you have to check "Private", right? The receiver of the message gets a signal that he has received a private message. This message with the mention "Private" which arrived in a public place must keep that statute until the receiver wants to open it with no possiblity for anyone else to open it. This means the receiver must use his/her password to open it. There is a need to use a password to open private messages. I hope was not too ambiguous axplaining my point. Good luck and thank you so much.

Baba Salem.


Salem : 3:02 pm    November 14, 2007 reply · ·
Hi Adnan, I see you have been recently quite busy improving the shape of this place. I just wanted to thank you for that. The new look of the profiles is great on both banner and content. Shape is beautiful with its color, a warm blue. Content is interesting. It provides meaningful information about members.

Do they not say in America : "Slow and steady wins the race"? our here: "Belm8al kay tkell boudenjal"?

Salem : 1:52 pm    November 10, 2007 reply · ·
Kind of expression of a respectful Webmaster ;o)

I don't want to be private so far :o)


Salem : 1:49 pm    November 10, 2007 reply · ·
Wow! I like this image of you? there is a smile within a tough look. Kind of comments critics do about the Da Vinci historic and universal "La Joconde".

PS. The comparision has nothing to do with gender.


Salem : 12:41 pm    November 10, 2007 reply · ·
Did you add the feature "Private" today?


Salem : 12:40 pm    November 10, 2007 reply · ·
Yes Adnan, I think you see what I mean. Good luck.


Salem : 11:58 am    November 9, 2007 reply · ·
It's me again. I've been visiting Inboxes of few members starting with yours to post my previous message. I also visited Hudhud's one as I have a special communication with "Her", which lead me to Suzy's inbox. While doing so, I noticed that members communicating this way on this space make their exchange as if they were communicating in private somehow. At least they tend to behave so as they speak sometimes about kind of "private" things like giving their phone numbers, making appointments, etc.

My point is what is the purpose of droping messages to each other while entirely visible to other members? don't you thing that it would make more sense if members could communicate in a private room and so people would be encouraged to communicate with the members they want to communicate with, easyly and under some privacy protection?

Just a question.

Best regards

Hello. I am happy to find this site. I love Morocco and hope to one day live there permanently. My husband loves New York City for now and since having to leave my favorite city - New Orleans - after Hurricane Katrina, we have been living here in a semi-limbo state. When I get to live in Morocco I hope to bring something to enrich people's lives. I believe in art and showing folks new ways to express themselves. Peace. Suzy Cameleon

I wished the system could have ask me if I was sure to remove the message before removing it actually. Can you help in that too? and I hope I'm not bothering you with my requests.

Thanks a lot Adnane. Until then can you do it for me? I'll tell what... There is a comment where I spoke about some people so specifically that anybody can recognize who they are. I did that without their consent. I realized that I have no right to do that. I feel guilty and I want to correct that either by correcting the comment or by simply removing it. Thanks again.

The Old Man's Job Application

This is an actual job application that a 75 year old senior citizen submitted to Wal-Mart in Arkansas.

NAME: George Martin

SEX: Not lately, but I am looking for the right woman, (or at least, one who'll cooperate).

DESIRED POSITION: Company President or Vice President. But seriously, whatever's available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn't be applying here in the first place.

DESIRED SALARY: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitz style severance package. If that's not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.


LAST POSITION HELD: Target for middle management hostility.

PREVIOUS SALARY: A lot less than I'm worth.

MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.



PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30-3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS?: Yes, but they're better suited to a more intimate environment.

MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER?: If I had one, would I be here?

LIFTING UP TO 50 lbs.?: Of what?

DO YOU HAVE A CAR?: I think the more appropriate question here would be "Do you have a car that runs?"

HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION?: I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, so they tell me.

DO YOU SMOKE?: On the job - no, on my breaks - yes.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb, sexy, blonde, supermodel who thinks I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.


SIGN HERE: Sagittarius

Wal-Mart ended up hiring the old man because he was so funny.
