We're seeing a lot of these screens lately, so you've got a chance to play 'find the differences'. When posting yesterday about the ban on YouTube, I had forgotten to mention the slightly different ban against WordPress that has been in effect here since August 2007.
The ban stems from a libel suit between two Turkish citizens, one of them using WordPress to publish criticisms against the other. A judge decided that since WordPress did not censor the critic and did not observe Turkish court rulings, that WordPress itself should be punished.
I posted about this back in September, but since I use Bloglines instead of visiting the actual sites, I haven't been feeling the effects so acutely -- and stumbled upon a good argument for feed readers as a freedom of speech workaround. Still, this only enables me to read WordPress blogs from outside Turkey; Turkish bloggers cannot access the site to post to their own blogs.
You can find a good summary of the case here:
