Either they got commands from on high or they're getting worried about more controversy from the homophobic American media, but Bioware have begun locking threads discussing homosexuality and censoring words such as "gay" or "lesbian" on their Star Wars: The Old Republic forum.
Bioware's Sean Dahlberg explained simply: "As I have stated before, these are terms that do not exist in Star Wars. Thread closed."
So, to reiterate: C-3PO is camp, not gay.
jp update: The moderator on the Bioware forum has apologised for overstepping the mark, and the gay discussion there has been allowed to continue. Source: Kotaku.
