Hey guys.

Stop with the tildes all the time.

You're making this place look like a pro-wrestling forum.

Those guys put a "tilde bang" to denote a particularly exciting sentence. Like this~! The "tilde bang" represents 10 exclamation points.

Here's a pro-wrestling shirt featuring the tilde bang. (http://www.cafepress.com/f4wonline.28048671) Surprisingly, there is no Wikipedia listing.

So, anyway... take it down a notch.

I would like to take this opportunity to submit that the word "whilst" be banned from use in Wikipedia entries. It's one of those words writers there use to sound learned, but they just sound dumb.

Or, you know, is commonly used in everyday speech by any editor or submitter in the UK.

That's impressively masturbatory!

Also, I would totally read that forum.

I knew there had to be a reason.

Still sounds hoity-toity to me. Especially in an article about Transformers: Armada.

Maybe the guy who wrote it was British?
Seriously though, it is okay not to be an Internet Stereotype sometimes! Genuinely trivial matters that perhaps strike you as out-of-place need not spark a lengthy rant about the incompetence of everyone involved! Sometimes people play with language! Sometimes a dude gives Optimus Prime lips! It is fine! There are bigger issues in the world to be upset about!Going with Parish on this one.

Now I just really want to see a slightly embarassed, coy wrestler holding a hand to his mouth and saying "nyoro~n" or something.

Don't awaken a hunger that you cannot sate, VsRobot! :mad:

I haven't used a tilde since my old Tripod URL.

I have a lot of catching up to do.
