It seems MSN has banned the words "Democracy" and "freedom" for China users of its free blogging service Spaces. Anyone who attempts to input either of these words is prompted with an error message aying "This item contains forbidden speech. Please delete the forbidden speech from this item."

I am very opposed to censorship. ***** is incredibly important. Especially when you consider it in the context of **********. I mean, really, where can ******* ******* of ******** when surely ******** *******?

You understand, right?

Big media giving into the censorous demands of the Chinese government is nothing new, but it is something that we can point out, and oppose. I think it's important to remember which companies (such as MSN) facilitate this censorship so they can make money now, with only the promise of freedom sometime in the future.
