France Has A Name For The @ Sign
from the arobase? dept
Because we’ve all been dying for a new word from the French, they’ve sat around deciding that “at” simply isn’t an acceptable way to refer to the @ sign. So, from now on, please refer to @ as arobase. About the only potential use I can see of this is for people posting comments publicly who want to avoid spam scrapers and want to be you arobase your domain dot com.
