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.

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.)
