And there you go with the red herring.

Nobody is suggesting censorship.  Debian has made decisions about what
we include and exclude in our OS for years.

Would you suggest we are censoring because we don't include all of
Project Gutenberg in main?  Or because we don't include every GPL'd
package on Freshmeat?

To simply not include something in a package we deliver has nothing to
do with censorship.  Censorship is preventing people from being able to
say or access material, and we are not doing that.  (Though we do
distribute tools that can, such as chastity-list and squidguard.)
People are quite able to access this material, or other matierial, using
Debian, on their own.
