This is a rather silly question: you can't expect me to name
names! But - as I said before - the answer is "many people". Just
ask around ...
who now days doesn't know the at-sign ...
You have made my point perfectly: because you don't know the name of
the symbol itself, you have to identify it by its function and call
it the "at sign". That's just like the people who don't know the
word "ampersand" calling that symbol the "and sign".
and the tilde is one of the marks, in the Romance languages, placed
over some of their letters to distinguish meanings ...
Indeed. And that's basically my point: the character "~" on my
keyboard is mid-height and would not be "placed over" anything (even
a lower-case letter). So it must be something else.
