Hot diggety dog. I’m banned in Turkey.
Apparently this is all the doing of a Moslem creationist and holocaust-denier named Adnan Oktar who is the author of the books written under the pen name Harun Yahya. As far as I can tell, Oktar has been accused in the Turkish courts of sodomy, sex with minors, blackmail, bribing public officials, carrying on defamation campaigns against a political rival and a movie star who refused to have sex with him, and oh yeah, illegal possession of guns. He is the named author of a huge array of books that one would think impossible for only one person to write, including a very expensive-looking anti-Darwin tome filled with glossy photos that infringe an a number of copyrights. The books are being given away in European countries.
Somehow Adnan Oktar (or Harun Yahya) also has enough hidden clout to get a Turkish court to issue an order banning all WordPress.com blogs from the country.
No one seems to be able to trace Oktar’s financial backing.
