But what's with the asterisk?<br><br><br><br>
Why do I see so many people writing veg*n instead of just plain old vegan???<br><br><br><br>
I know, dumb question, but please humor a noob...

many people on this board use veg*n as a sort of slang to mean both<br><br>
vegan and vegetarian.

Yeah, it's just computer shorthand that combines vegetarian and vegan so you don't have to actually type out vegetarian and vegan.

It's not slang. It's a glob expression.
