Censorship has nothing to do with it. I just don't want 100+ messages a day
about foreign politics clogging my mailbox, I already get way too much
e-mail.

It's just that if we start talking about politics, guns, SUV's, etc, we
don't stop. Think about how much we discuss a single topic (OM cameras of
course), just try to visualize the mail-flood if we were to discuss
everything here.
