I want the program to get a line of text as input from the user and print that text with all of the "curse words" replaced by ****

If there are no "curse words" in the text entered by the user, the text is returned, unchanged.

Once the program has censored the text, the user must be asked to enter more text or just hit the [Enter] key to quit.

What I have tried:

Python
userText = input("Enter some text to be censored: ")

Be careful you don't make the clbuttic[^] mistake, or you'll end up with the Scunthorpe problem[^]. :)

You can achive this through using join(), split() + list of censors words. You code like be

userText = input("Enter some Text to be Censored: ")
# Initialization of censors words list and replaced by
censors_words = ['dang', 'darn', 'freak']
repl_word = '****'
result = ' '.join([repl_word if idx in censors_words else idx for idx in userText.split()])
print("Result : " + str(result))

Entered TextL Hello dang for darn and freak
Result : Hello **** for **** and ****
