Delete the asterisk and move on with your life.

It's probably a word like fag or fuck which has been probably innocently included in the URL, for instance www.metaphor.com/images/three/donald_***en.jpg
See how Fagen is asterisked out? Because the system sees a banned word, and cannot provide context as our AI has not yet reached the level of Skynet. That's probably what's happening.

The truth is, I'm writing a story that I am dual posting on both Websites. So those random asterisk get old fast when it happens with every single chapter.

Here is an example of those random asterisk when I did NOT add these random asterisk.

Cake Cream had won 500 Million each from the Brandon Records thing and they were worth 2.5 Billion at the time just from that. They each gave Axl 100 Million for being such a good Friend and Manager to them, so they were still worth 2 billion just from the Brandon Records thing. Before the Brandon Records thing, Cake Cream were worth about 100 Million each, or 500 Million each. With Bronze Cake, each Cake Cream Member got at least 50 million each. So they, combined still were worth at least 2.5 Billion. Wow! They were the wealthiest Music Band in the World in only their 20's!*



Guinness World Records put Cake Cream as the Wealthiest Music Band in the world. They even surpassed The Beatles, who are worth about 2.2 Billion.*



Cake Cream and Axl were excited! Cake Cream were now officially in the Guinness World Records! WOW! Funny how life turned out. Cake Cream once again, went from being kind of unknown earlier this year to being really successful and very wealthy, and are now a part of History as a part of Guinness World Records.*



Cake Cream were wondering if they should start charging more for Cake Cream tickets now that they were the Wealthiest Band in the world. They wondered if they should charge $500 a ticket now.*



Axl shook his head. Remember, we made a promise to NEVER raise Cake Cream tickets. We PROMISED that we would ALWAYS charge $25 a ticket. We have to honor our PROMISE.*



Cake Cream reluctantly agreed to keep their promise to NEVER raise Cake Cream ticket prices. Axl smiled. In an interesting thing, on Social Media, there were lots of Cakers who mentioned how grateful they were that a Cake Cream ticket was only $25 and would be only $25 for good. They mentioned they loved how cheap it was, especially with inflation.



Axl gave Cake Cream meaningful looks.



Cake Cream were like," Okay, Axl, you're right."



Axl smiled again. Life was good.*



John Wilson was incarcerated in another State, Axl's Band, Cake Cream, were the Wealthiest Music Band in the world, they were wildly successful, he himself was worth about 700 Million. He had these 4 Cake Cream Brothers and a Cake Boyfriend who loved him dearly and vice versa. Axl was glad he decided to stay with Cake Cream and vice versa.

What's the link so I can check it? Looks like they're footnotes, ie this asterisk means this source is cited, etc. But I'd have to see the actual source link to be sure.

The very bottom is the one in I specifically copied and pasted on here as an example. I don't know how those random asterisk show up when I did not put them there myself on here.

Ok. I've copied the same selection three times here, the first time using COPY as it comes up when you highlight the section, the second as a QUOTE SELECTION and third as a simple ctrl-c. As you can see, no asterisks. So I'm afraid I don't know what's happening that you're getting them.
