Censorship would apply as a term in this discussion if the rule was to eject
those who simply do not agree with a particular position, decision, etc.  

That is not what these rules do. 

Until you show otherwise, then your battle cry of censorship is just hot air.

If the answer is yes, then that person has abused their privilege of
participation, and they have thus censured themselves.

Don't like it, Karl, then by all means just do what you have been threatening
to do.  It's time to move on. This is REALLY getting old, and we are just
belaboring the same points over and over.

The rules are in place.  If someone can't abide by rules of civil behavior,
then they will be ejected from the forum for a period of time.

If you can't handle that, then eject yourself.  

Can we end this thread now, and get on to real substantive issues?
