Blinding cloud reduces attack range of anything under the cloud to "melee".

Since sieged tanks have a minimum range, does this disable them completely?

"does this disable them completely?" It only stops them from attacking. They can still unsiege/siege while in blinding cloud. – SimonL Mar 14 '13 at 22:37

As per the teamliquid wiki:

Blinding Cloud is especially useful against Siege Tanks, as the tanks must un-siege in order to move out of the cloud, effectively removing them from the battle.

While it says they must un-siege in order to move out of the cloud, this does not mean they cannot siege. But yes, they are completely unable to attack in siege mode.

Binding Cloud will reduce all units within the cloud to a range of 1 aka melee. But here is the kicker. Siege Tanks of a minimum range of 2 in Siege Mode, therefore will not be able to attack until they unsiege, or until the spell wears off.

I do not like the term 'disable' because it is truly not disabled. Disabled makes it sound like it will never work again in which it will. It's just while the spell is in affect, it must unsiege to attack because its range is less than its minimum range.
