"Istanbul (dpa) Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is considering banning YouTube and Facebook after local elections at the end of this month, according to remarks carried by local media Friday. It may, or may not be the criticisms arising from (not-yet verified) leaked recordings of Mr. Erdogan's involvement with corruption.

'We will not let YouTube and Facebook destroy our nation. We will take measures, including closure,' said Erdogan, who has previously made comments against social media sites. YouTube had been banned in the country for two years and was recently unblocked."

    We're sick of your ill-cultured assholes coming in and telling women from our area "Show Vagyna" or "Opyn Tyts Plz"

    SCREW TURKEY AND ANY SIMILAR COUNTRY. BAN THEM ALL FROM OUR WORLD. There's a reason almost every video chat program worth a shit has them globally blocked by IPv4 and IPv6. They take the program and advertise it as a sex chat, where we advertise it as a meeting and hangout place.
