list censorship: an afterthought

I should have been more clear. I object to censorship bysubject, not entire content. Using the metaphor of asking people not to smoke or poop on the floor of one's home, as opposed to letting them debate certain issues: That kind of "poop on the rug" stuff translates to list "pissing" - bad language, abusive tones, flames, thousand posts a day etc. That kind of thing has always been filtered and the FAQ deals with it- and I *liked* to see behavior censored, because it created an envorinment for free thought.
But banning subjects... well...
