I don't know. :)  If I did know, I would just edit the article and both 
sides would cheer for me.

Usually what I would look for in a case like this would be something 
which neither side views as censorship.  Obviously some people will view 
anything other than their most-preferred solution as censorship, but 
usually moderates can find a happy enough solution somewhere.
