did you actually ready the article.
they did release a censored version (in the form of just a picture of the band) for release in America, as at the time American society objected to the cover.

The UK is a Police State, what can I say? We now have the Home Secretary lying about how she didn't know that an opposition MP was arrested.... pfft. She was probably behind the whole thing.

I mean now that child porn is a really widespread issue, a censored version for the entire internet.


They could have at least covered more than just a pixel with the "tear"

They should watch the real crimes, and not finding out the scapegoats, in such sites as wikipedia. They will report to the people that they are real pornfighters!!! but in fact they banned people from the largest knowledgebase.

There is no amoral context in that page, and the image is 30 years old... older than me in fact...

Thinko before diong something. Cannot do useful, do nothing...

it's just that single page that is banned. not the whole on-line encyclopaedia

as for the censored version for wikipedia...

why? whilst I understand that an article on paedophiles shouldn't contain images of child porn, as they would bring very little to the subject.

Album covers and images of such do embelish an article in a useful way,
even ones that perhaps should be considered inappropriate.
