oxide7 and a number of other readers sent word (from mostly non-authoritative sources as yet) that Turkey had imposed an indefinite ban on some Google properties. “Turkey’s Telecommunications Presidency said it has banned access to many of Google IP addresses without assigning clear reasons.

Other services such as AppEngine, FeedBurner, Analytics, etc., have also been reportedly banned.” Some real-time commentary (much of it in Turkish) can be found at Twitter hashtag #TurkeyCensoringGoogle. We have noted in past years the censorious ways of Turkish courts.
