Although the forces of stupidity are strong
The Rebel Alliance is starting stir.
And what are Rebels without posters

We have a petition as well

The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion. ~Henry Steele Commager
