Turkish Govt Bans Use of 138 Words on the Net

Jump to last reply

The Turkish government announced to day that 138 words, many English have been banned on the internet. The first group are words which may not appear in domain names. Second group seems to be less strict and the third category of words should not even appear in the context.

These words include "fire", "free", "animal", etc. Possibly Hurriyet in English or daily news may give a list. I am betting that Today's Zaman will not even mention this new censorship.

If you followed it, a few weeks ago an unpublished book was banned and having a copy on your hardware or on disk was declared a criminal offense. This book was on how the fethullah gulen sect has gained total control of the turkish police force, operating from Pennsylvania.

Just be careful which words you use here, especially if you live in Turkey.

This is also a warning to Fodors, to check posts to make sure non of those 138 words are used if TA wishes to avoid being banned in Turkey.

This is totally serious.

This is happening a day after the "Friendship Monument", a huge modern statue erected at the city of Kars near the Armenian border and clearly visible from Armenia was ordered taken down by the Primiminister who called it "a travesty".

What is even more interesting is that the government is taking these measures less than two months before national elections. If they hope to increase their votes by banning internet sites (possibly 90,000 or more which include those words in their domain names according to the calculations of one service provider) and by demolishing works of heart, the future of democracy in Turkey is very questionable.
