I have noticed recently some old threads resurrected; and one is suspicious in responding to because there is a double squiggle line after the OP's name. For some cultures this is a water symbol, for others it is an AC current demarcation. Cannot respond to these threads. Has that OP closed its account; ceases to exist or other? (succumbed/returned to the fishes or were electrocuted/rejoined the Absolute). Inference; Don't star this or continue this discussion? Its not clear what that notation means is all. Thanking you in advance (be merciful).

Those members have been banned from participating any longer on ATS.

ETA - That doesn't mean that you can't respond to that post or that thread. The discussion can always be continued as long as you have the ability to reply.

The banned member may not reply of course...

ETA - Again, that I may have misunderstood your question. Banned members have the squiggle in front of their names. Can you link to what you are describing?

You realize I had to use a "totally made up" word that resembled another one close enough genetically (protect the innocents).

I may have thought so or had that idea. The double squiggle is BEFORE? their name (thought after) implying don't reply or star this. I can say the name of the OP but not the link (did not reply or save) and might be bad form to reveal this poster RIP (if banned). New word "squiggle" to describe a water form ancient. Thanks for the clarification.

Wow, no one says Tilde anymore.
Squiggle should replace it.

Show me the nomenclature or abbreviation of this weird Tilde abbreviation parentheses LOST question mark to history parentheses period Is this the Squiggle exclamation point finally found at last question mark This would be a double Tilde semicolon brand new interpretation period YEAH exclamation point

Yeah... Don't name a name.


If it's a "squiggle" before the username and all that is showing is the username with no avatar and no background, that is indeed a banned member.

If it was 2 'squiggles', one over the other like a bent 'equals' sign it means 'approximately'

Now I'm sinking to trivial depths - must be the water sign influence

I'm curious what this mysterious double squiggle symbol is...Is it an approximately equal sign (≈)?

When they post, banned members also have a "squiggle" in the place where the blank "star" icon should be.
Perhaps this is what the OP means by "after the name".

The only "~" I see for banned members is one where the star icon should be...and I am guessing it's a placeholder to remove and prevent stars on banned members posts??

Thanks.


I think I keep getting confused because they said it was a double squiggle. I was picturing one over the other and I have never seen that.

YES; this is EXACTLY what it looks like (no key existing on my play board). A double tilde. I haven't looked up the meaning yet as I am anticipating a sneak attack from somewhere (getting my supply lines readied for a long siege of exclamation points, question marks).

Absolutely, Water Trumps Fire unless turned into steam then we get married. "banned" is no where near the definition of "approximate"; new terminolgy for the double tilde squiggle (ATS invented Brand New). Softer/more kind than the harsh AC jagged.

That is what I observed (after the name).

I use it for "sort of" or "about that much". Sometimes for "is loosely related to".

eta: does this work here? ≈

Where? Can you link it? If not then at least give someone enough info to search it.

YES and Nope; it is an exact in meaning "approximate" symbol. Not an "about that much" or "loosely related to". VERY CLOSE though; a first cousin to most definite(ly). You use it wisely.

(Read this link first or the following will make zero sense). No, nothing concerning Pilot errors involving "smarty vapor" aerosols sprayed over parts of Australia. Its all positive.
