I'm making this article a little less Internet-centric, so it doesn't appear to be playing to those who weren't even alive yet when the Berlin Wall came down and think Google, Facebook and Twitter are the keys to world revolution. If anyone thinks I'm adding too many examples from the real, i.e. offline world, just revert 'em and I won't care. Secret Squirrel (talk) 22:24, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Excellent, although if the list gets too long it might be better served broken up into categories of some kind, just to make it less daunting to read. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 00:03, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
Some relevant examples are about covered, I need to make the list *too* long. Secret Squirrel (talk)

What, no mention of Spycatcher?

And apparently 'banned by the Papal Prohibited Index' was used as a selling point by Protestant publishers in earlier centuries. (talk) 18:26, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

I've added Spycatcher to the examples of banned books. JumboWhales (talk) 19:15, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Censorship lifting[edit]

Does anyone know the name for the phenomenon in which something becomes highly popular after its ban is lifted? Thanks! Nerd (talk) 22:24, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

The Shapiro Effect?[edit]

Does Ben Shapiro's take on the Cardi-B song "WAP" fall under the Streisand Effect? He didn't necessarily try to censor it, but I'm guessing a lot of people hadn't heard of the song until Squeaky Benjamin got uber-triggered by the lyrics. --2602:306:C567:A119:D162:7E2C:33F4:8463 (talk) 21:46, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
