Access your WordPress blog with WordPrexy–Global Voices Online

September 24, 2007

[FACT comments: As we mentioned previously, ISPs are blocking websites independently of government. It is particularly worrying that blogsites such as Blogspot and WordPress are sometimes being blocked and sometimes not. Perhaps the following solution may solve the problems of blog censorship in Thailand. Please let us know.]

 
Great Firewall of Turkey: access your WordPress blog with WordPrexy

Turkey + Global Published by gvadvocacy September 23rd, 2007 Share This

WordPrexy

As a reaction to the court’s decision to block access to the entire WordPress.com blogging platform in Turkey, following a libel action brought by the Islamic-creationist, Adnan Oktar, Great Firewall of Turkey activists launched WordPrexy.com project to make Turkish blogs hosted on WordPress.com accessible. WordPrexy is a WordPress-specific proxy server that mirrors the content of WordPress.com:

What we do at WordPrexy.com is basically offer an easy to use proxy service to bypass the blocking of WordPress.com in Turkey. What we don’t do is copy your content and serve it as ours, or host it on our servers. We have neither the capacity nor the financial sources to do so.

But what is funny, and scary, is that WordPrexy could be used elsewhere in the world as well, like in Thailand where wordpress.com also has been blocked. Actually, WordPrexy clones every single WordPress.com hosted blogs, even the WordPress.com home page. So if your blocked blog is hosted on WordPress.com, WordPrexy has already a clone of it.
