Readers from Turkey reports that when they try to go to Rubin Reports the text is blocked and the following message appears:

Bu siteye erisim mahkeme karariyla engellenmistir.

Which means: "Access to this site has been denied by court order." It's frequently seen on sites with "objectionable political content." In other words, none of my Turkish readers can see the article you are reading now.

I am now told this is due to a legal dispute between the Digiturk Company and Blogspot and that all Blogspot items are banned.
