From Wrestling Observer's Velocity Report, by Nathan Eckstrom:

"I've been thinking and I want to know if anyone else thinks that the ~ symbol should be renamed "The Alvarez". I mean, where else is it ever used to any effect?"

HERESY~!

But does he do it disguised in one of his lucha masks or one of his t-shirts and shorts, southern VA style?

Oh, and definitely send that old pic of you with the bicpeps pose to totally intimidate them, Dean.

Or something.

Aw christ is that sad.

I like Bryan. He's been a nice guy over the years. The few times I read him, his writing style was more than a bit derivative, especially of Dean's style. It's possible that a good deal of Bryan's audience, including Dave, have never read Dean, so they think Bryan's original.

Stupid question: does that symbol actually have a name, or is just 'wavy line' (not to be confused with 'buncha wavy lines,' like in Ghostbusters)?

Other places the tilde is used:

'~.' will usually send a break over a terminal connection.

~ is used in numerous programming languages:
C/C++ - one's complement unary operator
Java - same as C, I think
Perl - unary bitwise complement and regular expressions modifier
PostgresSQL - regular expressions match operator

~ is a shortcut for the home directory of a given user on a *nix system (~ on its own is the shortcut for the current user's homedir).

~ is the unary negation operator in many standard symbolic logic languages.

~ is an accent used over the letter 'n' in Spanish.

So really, I can think of lots of places ~ is used to rather useful affect.

(of course, DEAN~! should still sue/beatdown/destroy.)

Yep. Dave seems to know DVDVR, but that might only be from whichever Phil was sending him tapes and whenever someone sends him the Top 500.

(I also like Bryan and Frank A. Gotch.)

And, though only the uncool don't know it, ` is the anti-tilde and must be used in bunches. `````````````````````, for example.
