This site is banned in Turkey

July 16, 2009

But it is an aspiring ‘European’ nation that bans the public use of headscarves (synonymous with enlightened Western progress), so its censorship will go unnoticed. ‘The Second Criminal Court of Peace in Denizli, western Turkey, has banned access to Google Sites, which contains thousands of websites. The reason for the ban is not known. […] Between 23 November 2007 and 11 May 2009, access was banned to 2,601 websites. Youtube, for example, has been closed to users in Turkey since 5 May 2008. Other sites used by millions of people, such as wordpress.com, geocities.com, myspace.com, dailymotion.com and alibaba.com have also been banned.’ (from Seth Y.)
