Larry Wall: "What is the sound of Perl?  Is it not the sound of the
wall that people have stopped banging their heads against?"  (Sorry, it
has nothing to do with the topic at hand, it just came to mind.)

Mere matter of terminology.  It *is* censorship.  Frankly, I don't see

to stop people from communicating when they say something you have
decided to censor.  It doesn't imply anything about cutting out tongues
or confiscating computers.
