What is your general opinion on censorship?

Sometimes can be a good idea but other times, it can be completley over the top.

Why do you think people try to censor others?


To either protect younger audiences from things that might upset or disturb them or to avoid people being sued. The South Park episodes with The Prophet Mohammad spring to mind.

Things like the News however I do not think should be censored unless the content really is too distressing for children to see. Kids these days have little to no knowledge of whats going on in the outside world.


Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how?

Not that I was generally aware of. Does my parents turning over the channel during sex scenes count when I was younger?

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?


[X] Television
[ ] Movies
[X] Music (to an extent. On the radio yes. Albums or anything, I believe the EXPLICIT sticker, or whatever its called, is sufficient)
[X] Video games (Video games definitely need to have a recommended age on it. Content of games like Grand Theft Auto never affected my behaviour but a lot of kids can get their hands on these games and become very addicted and have anger problems)
[ ] Literature
[ ] News
[ ] Internet
[ ] Art

Do you think censorship helps protect children?

[X] Yes

What is your general opinion on censorship? Censorship for the young, as an adult you should stay away from what you know you don't want to see.

Why do you think people try to censor others? Because people feel they have the right to control others.

Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how? Not really, no.

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?

Everything should be censored for the young (in various degrees corresponding with age)

I don't see any use for censorship aside from putting certain shows, music, and other such stuffs in categories for children that are too young to understand adult stuffs.stuffs

Why do you think people try to censor others?

People who would prefer things be restricted across the board to all age groups because they don't want to lay down basic rules about what their children are allowed to watch.

Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how?

No.

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?

[ ] Yes
[X] No

Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

It's bad and the justifications for it are usually shaky.

Why do you think people try to censor others?
To limit their frames of thought.

If I had, how would I know? Not all censorship is obvious.

I'm not a fan of it, but in some cases I can understand it.

Why do you think people try to censor others?

On an individual level, just because they don't like something. When it comes to the government, private organisations, etc., it's to create a favourable image, prevent certain things from getting out, often to legitimately not offend people, and sometimes deliberately brainwashing.

Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how?

No. Unless you count things like getting sent out of a classroom because I said something a teacher didn't agree with, which has happened a few times. There are other scenarios but I haven't been effected in any major way.

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?

[ ] Television
[ ] Movies
[ ] Music
[ ] Video games
[ ] Literature
[ ] News
[ ] Internet
[ ] Art

Do you think censorship helps protect children?

[ X] Yes
[ ] No

Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

[ ] Yes
[ X] No (at least not legal prohibition for kids to watch films rated R, for example. I should also say I think censorship mostly protects kids in certain scenarios. For example a censored internet may prevent kids from accessing websites with illegal activity.).

I should mention that I don't think any particular medium should be censored; it's about setting. It makes sense for schools to censor certain things, for news agencies and public institutions to not say things that would anger the public, spout hate speech, etc.

What is your general opinion on censorship?
Censorship is bad, mkay. Although having said that, I think the media should be mindful of what they choose to present. For example, I don't believe gore and pornography have a place on prime-time television. Not because the censors don't allow it, but because it might genuinely disturb some people. Just because you can does not mean you should.

Why do you think people try to censor others?
To restrict people's access to certain information, presumably for the safety of those in charge of the censorship.

Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how?
My school had a website filter so we wouldn't play flash games on library computers. We used proxies. Does that count?

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?

None.

Do you think censorship helps protect children?
No.

Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?
Yes, but I don't think they should be strictly enforced. They should be for parents to make informed decisions about what their children should or should not see.

I don't have a problem with censorship if it is handled responsibly.

In most cases it may be that they don't think what is being presented is suitable for everyone.

What is your general opinion on censorship? It's bullshit.

Why do you think people try to censor others? Because they think they can "protect" others or because they're find something to be their "property".

Have you been affected by censorship, and if so, how? Well, I've had to deal Youtube censorship.

Which of the following types of media, if any, do you think should be censored?

[ ] Television
[ ] Movies
[ ] Music
[ ] Video games

NONE!

Do you think censorship helps protect children?

[ ] Yes
[X] No, because unless the parents watch their kids, then the kids just go ahead and watch/play/listen to whatever they want.

Do you think age restrictions should be put on movies and/or video games?

[ ] Yes
[X] No
