"Blogger" service banned in turkey

Ankara - A court in south-east Turkey on Friday banned Turkish internet users from accessing Blogger, the world's largest free blog hosting service. Internet users in Turkey discovered Friday afternoon that the site, which hosts millions of blogs, or web logs, had been blocked. When users tried to view a blogger's page they were redirected to a message which said: "Access to this website has been suspended in accordance with decision no. 2008/2761 of the TR Diyarbakir First Criminal Court of Peace." No reason for the ban was given."

Sounds like a major battle for control may be taking place in Turkey.

Sorry farmer, had a busy week, getting caught up on your posts now.

Boy, this is no surprise and I just wonder how long in Amercia we will be able to be free to say what we think. Not much longer I think.

Oh brother we knew that this would begin to happen in more and more places. Praying for you and all those in Turkey now who are limited to getting the truth.
