DATE OF BIRTH 1 January 1927 PLACE OF BIRTH Fes, Morocco DATE OF DEATH Jamal Morelli Despite its relative length, this is clearly a vanity article about an obscure individual. Please note that his main claim to fame is a short student film. The rest of the information, such as about his political activism or interest in learning Moroccan Arabic, is utterly irrelevant and unnoteworthy. There were also inappropriate mentions of this individual in other articles, such as a bizarre in suggestion in Cuckold that unfaithful women shout "Jam! All! More!" while having sex with their husbands as a way to evoke Jamal Morelli, the real object of their desire; another example is this mention under Fes: "the Ville Nouvelle is a bustling commercial center with a popular American Language Center and filmmaker Jamal Morelli's studio." Finally, every result on Google seems to be either a Wikipedia article on which his name (inappropriately) appears, or from sites such as answers.com that reflect Wikipedia's content.Wfgiuliano (User:Wfgiuliano) 22:56, 17 April 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete''' My opinion has been made clear.Wfgiuliano (User:Wfgiuliano) 23:54, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
