@impurezeroThere is a big difference between a choice you make for yourself and advocating the choice of others, which is essentially what censorship is. Because censorship isn't the free choice of not going to a strip club because you think a big man in the sky will be upset with you, no, censorship is when you deny that free choice for others.It's not a debate of morals either considering both a religious loonie and a Chinese official will agree on similar core rights and wrongs. You seem to bring the US into it and that's really a good example, because morally China and the US isn't that far appart.You both torture and execute prisoners. Neither of you truely respect the sovereignty of other countries that get in your way. You both monitor your own citizens, and even go as far as to abduct citizens of your allied states illegally. Both your governmental systems are anti-democratic, China is worse on paper sure, but not counting votes that aren't handed to a winning party in an entire state isn't exactly something the US should pride itself for nor is the influence organized religion has on your government.Really it's just a debate of faith. Christians believe boobs are wrong, the Chinese believe bones are wrong and I believe both groups should break free instead of being subdued but in terms of purpose I'd say the Chinese government wins since the censorship of WoW is just one small part of remaining one of the most powerful nations on earth compared to denying yourself boobs which is just stupid. :p
