Also this -

"money you transfer to anyone in the world is instantaneous, in as little as an hour..."

Is self contradictory and you know it.

Not at all. You get the money instantly, but it takes "as little as an hour to confirm it to be irreversible".

Compare that to receiving credit card payments, which take 6 months to confirm it as irreversible (prior to that the buyer can do a chargeback).

It is still censorship and a pretty stupid thing to censor at that.

In many countries election related 'advertising' (or campaigning) is prohibited for 24 hours before election starts.

No, it's not censorship.

Yes it is. It's '24 hours of censorship before the election starts'. Read your own post.

No, censorship carries the meaning that it is done by the government against the people's wishes. Most people seem to agree that it is a good idea to prevent damaging and scurrilous revelations just before an election.

It doesn't carry that meaning with me. If 99.9% of the population agree that censorship is a good idea 24 hours before an election, it's still censorship.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
