While we're at it, let's do that for

* Spoilers
* Images containing nudity
* Images containing intense violence
* ...

In fact, I would argue that the above list contains things *more*
important than censoring Mohammad images.  Nudity, for example, is
likely to offend a far larger number of people than images containing
Mohammad.  Why should we bend over backwards to appease one religious
group when we have the potential to appease far more editors across
all races and religions?

[[WP:NOTCENSORED]], that's why.
