For the Record, it was erased/banned c. 2004 by the former webmaster of LAAHS.com because the Moroccan sample was considered "out of limits" in a Latin Forum. -)

I don't really know what the bickering between the two of you is all about (nor do I want to), but why don't you guys take it out on each other by PM, wet towels in the shower, handbags at dawn etc., and not on the forum. Childish and boring! T J
