The Streisand Effect

The Streisand effect is a primarily online phenomenon in which an attempt to censor or remove a piece of information has the unintended consequence of causing the information to be publicized widely and to a greater extent than would have occurred if no censorship had been attempted. It is named after American entertainer Barbra Streisand, following a 2003 incident in which her attempts to suppress photographs of her residence inadvertently generated further publicity.

Aren't Internet memes wonderful.
So, I will direct you to this post on Pharyngula in order to see what the purpose of this post is.

Also, in keeping with the meme, I will also post links to here, here, and here.

Have a nice day.
