why does everyone type plecostamus as pl*co instead of pleco?

It's kind of a Internet joke among fishkeepers. I don't know how it got
started, but there's a sort of superstition that if you actually type out
"pleco," your pleco will die.

I don't think people actually believe it, any more than they believe that
they'll break their mother's back if they step on a crack in the sidewalk.
They're just being playful.
