My biggest problem with censorship is that it draws people who might never know about it to something they are only getting into because of the notoriety. It's the same thing as "making a martyr" out of some murdering scum during a war by torturing him and shooting him at sunrise: you give his self-serving actions a higher significance by the outrage with which you suppress them.

Thought control leads to the very things it tries to eradicate--as people's natural tendency is to fight against being controlled. Unfortunately, they way it operates, it makes the wrong things important for all the wrong reasons.

Without this ban, most people would probably not give this game a second thought, let alone buy it for what it actually has to offer.
Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
