Even the most scathed and unpopular of opinions, when allowed expression, can add value to discourse provided they don't commandeer and dominate the dialog. Perhaps a voting-based moderation would give us a pre-viewing filter we can use to decide to leave some posts un-viewed? Or a tagging system like Slashdot's? Censorship by a central authority disturbs me--it is a slippery slope and place too much power in the biased hands of a few. Didn't most countries get rid of monarchies and divine right for a reason?
