An accusation of "censorship" for Eijiro Sumii's proposal is completely 
out of place. Moderation is hard labor that provides a valuable 
service: it accelerates my information processing. Furthermore, an 
abuse of the word "censorship" like that makes it a useless accusation 
when it is needed. This kind of abuse can only be committed by people 
who have never experienced real censorship.

Having said that, I find Stephanie's policy of "you can post if you 
subscribe" just fine.
