How is policing different than censorship...

After reading some posts on your blog, James, I think you are asking this question to make a rhetorical point.

If you stretch "censorship" to its furthest point, you can claim that any attempt to silence any type of speech is wrong. But let's not get carried away here.

The point is that if a group is trying to accomplish a goal, anarchy doesn't work. Rules have to be made, communicated, and enforced. Of course, this process can be abused. But without rules, voices can be easily drowned out by spam, trolls and others.
