Cthulhu exerts his will upon mankind through the “call”. This Call of Cthulhu, appears to be an entirely real phenomenon. Most common of its symptoms are that the afflicted individual “hears” Cthulhu. Individuals hearing the Call have little choice but to do its bidding. To the outside world they seem as mad men, but they know within whom they must serve without hesitancy or reserve. The call cannot be escaped.Federal Bureau of Investigation
The R’lyeh text states that the Call can be broken, at least for such time as most swift action may be taken. It requires a special invocation of Cthulhu, performed before his sign. The sign being drawn, a tooth should be brought to touch it, reminding the supplicant of the Great Old One’s hunger for the flesh of man. This done, the invocation of “Phnglui mgwanafh, Cthulhu R’lyeh w’gahnagl fthagn” is thrice intonated, within the hearing of the He Who Doth Hear the Call. This done, the tooth shall become enriched with the strength to break grip of the Call. But such is to be taken only with great dread, as Cthulhu shall take notice upon those breaking his grasp upon the living and unto them, if they be unrighteous, shall he send forth his calling.

Well.... Banned doesn't mean it was any good
The list also didn't really differentiate reasons or locations of the banning, could have just sucked so bad nobody wanted to carry the book.
