Helping the clueless refugees get to a site where they can actually
get some help.

Yes... helping them get to a site where they can actually communicate
their needs would truly be useful.

Dude... it's already 1AM Friday morning.  Tomorrow is Saturday, not Friday. :-)

Paul, I know I kinda bent your words a little above. Please forgive me. & Please
help cross-post the hell out of this and my previous message if you can find it
in your heart.  It's really that bad - people are telling the world
their cell phone
numbers on TV in hopes their missing relatives will call them. They NEED
craigslist.com... they just don't know that yet.

Thanks for your support,
