Bans? There's a whole, long list of the bastards!

Ban, ban, ban, where will it all end. The boys at Pacific Empire ask the question we're all asking, and they list the most recent knee-jerk responses to stop people getting on with what they want to.

If I may pull a Mencken quote out of the comments section for a moment, so much of the over-developed banning reflex in politicians comes back to Mencken's observation on the motivation behind puritanism: "...the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, might just be having a good time."
