PROGRESSIVE CENSORSHIP - Where did free speech go?

A posting on Indybay.org that was redistributed by the Maine Global Action Network (MeGAN) in an e-mail today makes all kinds of unsupported allegations about Bono, a US computer-game company called Bioware/Pandemic Studios, and US government agencies.

But the best part is that the posting calls on Bono to "block the manufacture and distribution of this videogame," as one promoting violence and otherwise involving (and by extension, presumably endorsing) other actions to which the poster - and presumably the person who e-mailed it to the MeGAN group - is opposed.

Should games and other forms of activities be banned because of their content?
