> Is it less disparaging with an asterisk? I get the point of asterisking vulgarities, but it eludes me for disparaging.

**LOL!!! I don't get asterisking vulgarities either!!!! We ALL know what the word is meant to be!!! LOL!
But then I thot...well...mebbe what the auto-as thing does, is allow for the fact that the word(s) are vulgar. So when wh*te trash is asterisked its like saying that its not a nice thing to say.....oh sh*t, I getting myself into a hole here, me w/my cussing....hmmmmmm.
Better quit while I behind!!!
Clear as mud I'm sure.
