    in or with, pls consult me - new year's first question

    Many taboo words are written in/with asterisks to avoid causing offence.
    Are they both acceptable?
    Thank you.
    Time flies; I'm one year older now.

    I'd say they are written AS asterisks, or replaced BY asterisks.

    Happy new year.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
