Editorial I was reading today about how Linux Mint developers altered the Banshee music player source code to redirect affiliate revenue from Amazon music orders to them instead of Banshee. They've reportedly made less than $4, which has caused a kerfluffle among those paying attention to that corner of the world. But it raises a larger point that has been swirling around for a couple of decades: an OS vendor has a lot of power to influence, and even monetize their user base. Where should they draw the line?

Censoring the internet is _NEVER_ OK. Child porn has to be DELETED and the people who put it there need to be prosecuted.


And exactly how "deletion" is not censorship ? Censorship is not a synonym of "blocking". Censorship means preventing access to some information, which can be done by deleting or blocking.
