List of topics banned from Wikipedia?
The closest to this is fittingly on Wiki itself mentioning subjects that are forbidden, called List of Wikipedia controversies.
Is there not much on prohibited pages because virtually most subjects are allowed?

Wikipedia banned Electric Universe (physics)
The Electric Universe theory is one of the banned Wikipedia topics.
For any subject to be banned from the pages of Wikipedia would seem amazing, considering the list of unusual, the quite bizarre, horrific and radical topics that are permitted on The Free Encyclopedia. But there are scientific, peer reviewed, Wikipedia's NPOV neutral point of view and other Wikipedia logical reasons for the EU theory to not be allowed.
One of the great arguments against Wikipedia is that the celebrated farther of modern science, Galileo Galilei, as so referenced and lauded on his Wikipedia page, went totally against the popular scientific consensus of his time.
Galileo has been called the "father of observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", and the "father of science".

Would a Galileo Galilei Wikipedia page have been banned if Wiki was about at that time?
If you can explain further why the EU is censored on Wikipedia please comment below or contact the site. It would be good to get more information about the reasons for the banning from those who know more about or deeply understand this matter.
EU and Plasma Cosmology censorship?
The Electric Universe seems to be hitched to Plasma Cosmology, itself a non-standard cosmology theory. If you try to search for Electric Universe theory you will be given the auto suggest search option result of Electric Universe (physics) which redirects to plasma cosmology.
Proponents of Plasma Cosmology have to be careful of what they attempt to add and edit on the site or it and they will be quickly removed and banned. Even having the Physics Nobel Prize winner Hannes Alven, and the father of modern plasma instabilities Anthony Peratt as the proponent of PC does not make it Wikipedia Kosher.
The topic of plasma cosmology is controversial on Wikipedia and the its page use to look like this before it was edited to conform to the Wiki rules.
The EU theory is partly based on plasma cosmology, much to the annoyance of some plasma cosmologist, but plasma cosmology is not the Electric Universe, the same as the EU theory is not plasma cosmology.
Is it the mainstream science industry creating censorship of the alternative theories of the EU and PC or is it just Wikipedia following its rules, the same for other topics?
Electric Universe theory forbidden on Wikipedia
The EU theory page was on Wikipedia before it was removed and banned, there is a copy of the EU theory Wiki page from 2005.
The Wikipedia page Requests for arbitration/Pseudoscience has more information about the Electric Universe banning and those editors involved.
Wikipedia: Mediation Cabal/Cases/2006-02-11 Electric Universe Concept, NPOV clarification
Electric Universe articles such as Electric Universe proponents' predictions regarding Deep Impact have been removed.
How to quickly get yourself banned from Wikipedia
As a lot of Electric Universe theory followers who started to edit pages and create topics on Wikipedia found out, mentioning and external linking to websites or articles that are positive about the EU theory was a very quick and easy way to have all your contributions ethnically cleansed and then you forbidden as an editor.
