"Not censored" means just that. If you aren't happy that some images that
offend you (or you find offensive on others' behalf) might be displayed
then you should not use Wikimedia Commons.
Thats the type of response that is driving people away from Commons, many
spend a lot of time and effort trying to get GLAM organisations to
donate to our collections but these places have strict contractual
conditions on what employees can view and such images are outside those
conditions. That doesnt mean we shouldnt host them or even consider them for
FP, but value do we place on a couple of cartoon images getting to appear on
the main page compared to the donation 10,000s of images.
Why is creating a barrier to peoples participation is good thing?
