    Well. I am visiting Turkey, and it has come to my attention that Internet here is more blocked than the average middle age American arteries.
    How can people live with it?
    No imgur.
    No pastebin.
    No long etc.
    And ofc no porn.
    Oh noes. Life is so hard while visiting Turkey. /s (but also seriously, why so blocked?)

    Cause Turkey, like many other muslim countries have oppressive governments.
    Go to China for once, it's even worse there.

    To bypass it, use Tor.

    I am British Turk.... Who lives in London most of the time.

    Turkey used to be a very open forward thinking country... Was the golden child how a muslim government should be like.

    in the last 12 years since Erdogan has come in to power.. And hold grip of it at any cost.


    the country has gone to shit.



    at this rate, Turkey will make North Korea look like the scandinavian countries.





    a word of warning:



    use encrypted VPN... Or think twice before you post something on the web.

    Indeed.
    Turkey is the prime example of how a muslim country must be.

    I heard that from more people.

    now its another Muslim country who tries to force they way of life upon to you.

    the only thing is missing is getting your head cut off in the town square.

    Well. People in the street are quite friendly and helpful. Except the asshole who pick pocketed 50€ out of me (could happen anywhere).
    I will be here only for two days. So I hope the government doesn't come after me for my weird Internet usage.

    between yep and almost.



    let me put it like this: the military was going to doing a military coup and over throw the government cause it has become too Religious.. Some of the military leaders are in prison now cause they failed to do the coup.


    and in turkey military has always stood by the people and the right thing for the greater good.


    just shows how fucked things have become.


    as a foreigner you should be okay but become careful of pick pockets and the like.

    Google DNS is your friend. If that doesnt work, there is always VPN.
