It is censorship IMO ...
The issue being that some stuff is censored in the present, modern, advanced year 2011 and that appalls me. Also censorship in the past is unacceptable too but can be at least categorized as a "mistake of the past".

The editor here was doing exactly what he was supposed to do. This is not "censorship".
