Personally, I am now looking for an opportunity to leave this country…

    This sounds completely ridiculous and surely in the end will make no difference as people will use other tools or find a way around it….? I guess I am taking all my access for granted. I will now be even more grateful for being able to have my own blog.
    Orhan Pamuk has left, hasn’t he? oh, dear….
    All the best

  • it’s so sad.
    but i hope this one gives an inspiration to people to unite. i hope this censorship will make people angry. and i hope they will fight for their rights..
    what an optimistic thought, ha? i think the laws and orders of turkey, made me this crazy.
    youtube has been banned since May 2008. which one of you remember that there exists a site called youtube?
    no one cares about our rights, like freedom of thought and freedom of speech..
    as long as we keep our silence and accept all of these, i am sure that those guys will ban the whole internet.
    and i’m begging, please, never stop to ask “why?”
    “why did you ban those websites?”
