The less known are censored so they can more easily get into stores and just not the internet. Some stores don't wanna order the too kinky ones and this way they will get noticed and bought. Sales are important.
if I'm unsure I'll most definitely look up the original myslef and enjoy whatever they took out or not.

So, all that said, I don't think DMP is ever going to be printing censorship reports in the books themselves because of sales issues. And that's really for the best if we want to continue receiving any English translations, censored or not. The BL market has shrunk down to two main publishers and a few even smaller presses. We don't have much choice left other than to not purchase books at all.
Yes, the bottom line on June not advertising that some books are censored is that people won't understand why or how the books are censored (very little these days, just shafts and fluids, usually)
