Yeah, That's the Ticket

From the first paragraph of Network Solutions' press release explaining why they have suspended the website of a Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, who plans to release a short film critical of Islam:
We have also requested to review the planned content prior to it being loaded onto the site to determine whether the content violates Network Solutions’ Acceptable Use Policy. We are still waiting to hear from our customer. In the interim, we have temporarily suspended the site.
And in the last paragraph, we have this:
Network Solutions is by no means taking any action to limit freedom of speech or to preemptively censor content.
