I like the wording of Wikipedia's article on censorship:

Censorship differs from editorial selection. For example, a publisher cannot usually publish all books presented to it, and a library cannot usually contain all books published. Consequently, they choose what to accept, either for its potential profitability, in the case of a for-profit book publisher, or according to its materials collection policy, in the case of a library.

In this case, it would be considered editorial selection because it's an explicit choice to narrow down the category of information to accept to avoid confusion and/or misinformation. You may be of the opinion that there's no such thing as too much information, but I would disagree strongly and be completely baffled if you took a hard stance on that.

Whether or not this information is too much is up for discussion, but I won't waste time arguing whether or not there's such a thing as too much information. Calling it censorship simply reinforces your opinion to keep the content using a loaded word with obviously negative connotations, which will just further annoy people who disagree with you. These people want to deliberately hide regional patch content on this wiki in the same way they want to hide the birthday of Abraham Lincoln (yes, an extreme example); they simply don't see it as relevant.
