What the $#%& were they thinking?

Right now I'm watching Martin Scorcese's Casino on TV. To meet Star Movies's "standards", they've removed every instance of the word "fuck" from the film. According to the IMDb, that's 422 instances. Many lines contain awkward long silences in them; some scenes are reduced to several split-second flashes. It's pretty distracting, and I have to wonder why they even bothered.
