Default What's with all the asterisks?

Am I the only one seeing these or am I just missing out on some kind of joke?

I am seeing too and was about to start a post about it. But then I found this thread. It seems to be doing it mostly to words that start with "com". I don't know why, but something is messed up somewhere.

As noted in another post here, issue is now fixed .. hope it stays that way.
