There was a misunderstanding, it never occured to me (and obviously
other according to the replies) that there are two expressions
sounding so much alike. If I understand correctly there is:

censuring: To criticize severely
censoring: To examine and expurgate
(most probably they sound identical)

In light of that, I'll refine my sentence: "Yes, someone misbehaving
to some extent needs to be censured, e.g. criticized like in this
thread, no, censoring is always bad, e.g. no removal of bugzilla
