Blogger / Blog*Spot Connectivity In Turkey

Several bloggers in Turkey are reporting inability to access Blogger, and / or Blog*Spot blogs. No details have been provided by any reporting.

For right now, please use a proxy server to access all Blog*Spot blogs.

Blogger Support is aware of the problem, and is working on it.
We are looking into the matter, and working to ensure that the service is restored as soon as possible.


(Update 10/26 21:00): It looks like we have a situation reminiscent of the recent outages in India and Thailand. A government initiated blockage, compounded by the local ISPs.
By the order of local court, Turkish blogger users can not login or even display their blog sites.Some of blog users had broadcast those games freely in their blog sites.

Digiturk went to court to fix this problem.

Court decides to close those illegal broadcasts.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
