Technically that is censorship. The only reason to remove the word is
because some people find it unnecessary, where as other people find it
appropriate.

Removing language people find unnecessary or offensive is censorship.

That said. I don't always find censorship a bad thing. Removing
language that was an attack to someone's race, religion, sexuality, is
also censorship. But I'm fine with that kind of censorship. Censoring
words that someone simply finds distasteful, I honestly don't really
care, because some people find "heck" distasteful too.

I would also agree with you that David blocking you for creating a
disturbance is also censorship. But that's also a kind of censorship I
would prefer to have. (Blocking spam is censorship too).
