The Cost of Freedom: IMPACTION
These defamation blogs contained slanders to some of my client’s friends as well. They also applied WordPress.com support with their official ID cards and a representative directed them to write to the legal department. So they did but again no response from legal.
So we have become obliged to apply to Turkish judicial courts to stop this defamation executed through your services. By the decision of Fatih 2nd Civil Court of First Instance, number 2007/195, access to WordPress.com has been blocked in Turkey. – from Why We’re Blocked In Turkey
Wow. That sure says a lot after how everyone was wondering about what exactly was happening because of the block in You Know Where. This brings me back to the bunch of people who ended up getting in trouble just for their blog being on here or even in place like Facebook which is practically like MySpace on the social networking front. But aren’t bloggers like us aware of these risks in the first place? and plus making it public (meaning that absolutely everyone can read what’s posted on it) and the exposure adds to creating the problem in the first place. Even something as teenage as a bitchfight can escalate from just these problems. Perhaps we can all learn lessons from reading just this.
