No. Censorship is banning/prohibiting certain speech in *any and all*
public forums. Generally, only a state has that power.
The crucial difference is that, in this case, only *specific* forums
are denied for the speech in question. The ban does not extend further
than those specific forums, hence it is not censorship.
