It's not censorship though is it? We're not stopping them from writing whatever they want, we're just saying "We find your actions unacceptable and no longer wish to be a part of your circus."

Which I, for one, think is perfectly fine.

If you want to talk about infringing people's rights - what about being forced against your will to work with an organisation that you morally disagree with?

Yeah but there's a whole campaign behind it all where groups are actively trying to prevent shops in the area from selling it. From that point of view it is censorship.

If a shop owner wants to stock it then he should be able to without risk of a witch hunt from certain groups.

At the end of the day it should be a persons choice. I wouldn't buy it, ever, but I don't like the idea of some little vigilante campaign effectively taking away my right to make that decision by putting indirect pressure on retailers not to sell it.

Ironic that the most vociferous of campaigners will still have a big fuck off Sky dish attached to their house even though Mr Murdoch was personally responsible for giving that Shit weasel MacKenzie a column in the Sun.
