    Can't be arsed to read what the censorship is about, is it to block pornography?? Nothing new then, porn has been blocked here since Jan or Feb 2010.

    I can't see any source, but I do see signs with the YouTube logo on them. Are they banning YouTube?

    Speaking of signs, gotta love how they fashioned the pointer into a middle finger [​IMG]

    That is shocking, I hope you manage to stop it being implemented.

    i am against censoring multi-purpose websites like youtube but otherwise these sites are obviously requiring a ban... get married is what i say
    strange thing is that there are sooo many people.

    The emphasis is not put upon pornography.. Those who want it access it somewhat anyway.

    Here is the press release of a major dictionary site ek$i sözlük, one can see why internet users are wary of this new filtering mechanism.

    It's entirely the government's business if they decide the websites they browse may conflict with "the acceptable opinion of the government", if the government so decides that's how they operate.

    If I remember right, youtube got blocked after a single distasteful video was uploaded. That video is long gone now, but youtube remains blocked.
    Remember not everywhere is a democracy.

    The filter that Turkey is going to add, can be ACTIVATED by the user itself :/
    If you don't want to activate the filter, then you don't have to.....

    95% of those people that went to protest doesn't even know how to use internet..
