Because it's a polite thing to do. Using swear words only shows a lack of a vocabulary on the poster's part and quite a few of our members have no desire to see swear words everywhere they turn. So it's polite not to post the word itself. Finding a reasonable alternative to the actual word is better than the swear word anyway.
Not to mention that if the word itself is posted, the mods have the decision on if it stays or not. With a star/stars used instead, it's more likely to stay up and keep the poster out of trouble.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
