PC-->"Is it censorship to muffle a boor with a megaphone so that someone else has a chance to speak and be heard?"

No--this is the most important function of the Speaker of the House in our Parliament, and it is mostly because of Peter Millikin's abdication of this role that the current House looks the way it does.

Crying "censorship" is real easy, but demonstrating it is another thing completely. Having standards for discourse does not equate to censorship, and free speech does not require a raucous free-for-all that privileges large quantities of loud, emotional outbursts.
