In my personal blog (www.uglydoggy.com) you will see at the top right a 
banner from the GreatWallofChina.org site... they were extremely nice as to 
make that one because I asked for it (before I asked, they just had banners 
for sites that were AVAILABLE in China, but I wanted to use my site to also 
shed light on all the ones not available.... and they acted on my 
suggestion).

Maybe you can get them (now redesigning their website) to include Turkey in 
their site or to help do something similar for Turkey.

In fact Wordpress may (should!) also be interested in raising awareness 
about them being banned there...

My two cents,

Sandra :)
