instead of simply typing ****!
oo, I got the answer!
but still, doesn't make much sense
because they're are so many other four letter words that **** could be
oo, initially I didn't type ****; filter did that.
But I wonder why there's even such filter when people use sh*t anyways and it is considered acceptable.

It's so that people know which bad word you aren't using. ;-p
It does make it a wee bit bothersome anytime you need to mention a textbook authored by Lifsh!tz!
Because, for some strange reason, you think that if the software censor is not actually invoked, then you're not breaking the forum's language rules. Or, maybe, because you are intentionally violating those rules, and wish to thwart the software censor's attempts to obscure it.

Knowing the history of a word makes it a lot less vulgar. It's obscene that such a word is censored.
FINALLY i understand
I think a 'history of curse words' thread would be educational, but it would be kind of confusing talking about **** vs. **** or the advantages of **** over ****.
