"Censorship" is of course a heavily loaded word, but I've never
viewed content-tagging mechanisms, or "hide" mechanisms that are
positively *un*hidden by default, as censorship.

(But yes, were such mechanisms in place, I suppose epic POV
battles would be bound to erupt around the question of whether to
use them in particular cases, immaterial though the outcome would
be to the majority of readers who browse using default settings.)
