Hmmm, who here wants to put to use this new-found right (how the f---
is censorship a right? It's a power, but oh well...) of censorship to
use against Fedor Zuev? I suggest we find some Men in Black in Russia
to go rough him up a bit.
There a VERY large difference, as black from white, between me deciding
not to repeat certain portions of Mr. Zuev's post and sending people
to intimidate or kill him. The former is known, at least in the free
world, as free speech; the latter as censorship.
It's pretty damn simple. There is no coercion, no intimidation; there
is no censorship. If a newspaper decides not to print your letter to
the editor, too bad, that's not censorship. If Debian decides not to
distribute your essay on perverting the language for fraudulent
arguments, thats not censorship either.
 Just like cutting the philosophical sections from a manual.
