Wordiness: grawlix

I didn't know I didn't know this word, till I came across this question:
"What does one call the use of random non-alphabet characters to indicate cursing?"
You know: *^!*@&#^(^$#@(*(*@$(#^*$

The answer: "grawlix", and it dates back to 1964. See the full explanation at Ask H&FJ.
