This guy is totally crazy (in addition to being an antisemite and saying evolution causes terrorism).wingnut
You might have heard of him as the author of the shiny islamic creationist book sent to professors all over the world. Now, he’s after WordPress:

“So we have become obliged to apply to Turkish judicial courts to stop this defamation executed through your services. By the decision of Fatih 2nd Civil Court of First Instance, number 2007/195, access to WordPress.com has been blocked in Turkey.”

Basically, he’s claiming someone registered for WP in his name, and another blog exists that slanders him. (I’m going to join the club on that charge.)  And because of that, over 1 million blogs are blocked in Turkey.  While I don’t think I have a giant insectophile readership in Turkey, WP hosts many blogs by Turkish Citizens. And they are now denied a voice by one paranoid guy who can’t take criticism.

This looks remarkably similar to some of the talk origins issues that he started by complaining about “misinformation”.

Wiggle of the antennae to Ed for alerting me to this.

[BTW, It is a DNS based block, and you can work around it using some of the hints in the comments in this post. ]
