Internet censorship - acceptable or no?

The computer game Muslim Massacre appears to have been removed by its website host following worldwide condemnation.

Right or wrong? I don't accept for a second the notion that it glorifies the killing of Muslims - it is only a game, after all. There are plenty of examples around of real-life Muslims who glorify violence against non-Muslims without loony lefties condemning them.

Unquestionably, it is tasteless. Should it be banned, though? On balance, I think it should. A computer game which glamourises killing the members of any group in society is wrong.
