    Youtube is banned, because it ows the State money through its Adsense business.
    Goggle does not pay any taxes to Turkish State. It refuses, so we have banned them to eliminate that competition from Turkish advertisers who reside in Turkey and pay their taxes.

    Now it is very likely that Facebook will get banned, this seems to be problematic as 22.5 Million Turks have accounts on Facebook and represent 4th biggest nationaliy on it
    Facebook may be next victim of Turkey’s Internet bans - Hurriyet Daily News and Economic Review

    The head of the Telecommunication Transmission Directorate is currently facing a prison jail of 1-3 years for not following the order to restrict acces to a Facebook group, where opposition leader Mr. Kilicdaroglu was added as a PKK member of that PKK group.
    There was complaint regarding this issue in the courts, and Facebook did not show up in the court.

    Turkey to give all citizens national email addresses
    Email addresses will be added to identity cards given to children when born

    The key reason why Turkey sees Anaposta as a national security project - all the data will be transferring through servers in Turkey, not in the US as Google's Gmail.

    Only problems with those Americans and their general echelon shit, every Muslim is under general-suspicion of being a Terrorist.

    ekrem, I don't mean to rub your face in it or sound arrogant... it's just that these types of stories make me cognizant of the liberties I have here in America, and proud of them. I guess it puts things in perspective for me when I see foreign governments doing this kind of shit.

    I'm assuming most Turks are against this proposed ban?

    Remind me to thank God that I was born in America. I've been to Turkey - interesting country but, I guess they're not big on this whole 'freedom' thing. Any government who gave me an email address is gonna get it straight back.

    I wish that I could have a government issued email account...that way, I could direct all of my spam to that address and leave my other 15 Yahoomail, 3 gmail, and 5 Hotmail accounts free of garbage.

    You are lucky!
