I was more disturbed by the article and how the lady was just determined to hate her censor.
I didn't get that out of it at all. What I read was that she didn't want to be buddies with her censor. She understood that she would want to push back against the censorship at times, and that's a hell of a lot easier to do if you aren't going to meet up for dinner after work. You see the same thing in most companies. Development and QA aren't generally too close, or QA starts ignoring minor bugs rather than pestering Dev. Sales can cause huge problems if whoever is in charge of product requirements doesn't feel like they can say no to requests because they go golfing with the sales guy. That's not to say there isn't mutual respect and a common goal, just that the individual people need some professional detachment in order to do their jobs to the best of their abilities.
