Defining 'deletion of written material' as 'disposal of noxious waste'
is not advancing any kind of rational argument about censorship is it?
I'd rather not have to deal with a supplier's unilateral decision to
restrict what I may read on the net.
I'd probably do so by changing supplier.

He is in good company with you on the first count.
You are in no danger from my attack lawyers on the second.
I'd much rather put up with you on ucsm than pay a lawyer to constrain
Even "Mike" I presume he is the MI5 persecution person is an
educational read in a "watching a train wreck" kind of way.
I prefer to have an option to see his stuff to not having the option.
