By give up, you mean you didnt even try to click on search and enter "will not wendell" which returns this and then look at the first result?

Wendell is an anagram for "end well".

While we're here, what does "." mean in a thread?
posted by eyeballkid at 5:21 PM on April 18, 2007


It means "I have a point, but I'm not sharing."

wendell's name was often dropped
when threads detoured from bad to worse [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

It's Raining Florence Henderson, I think for metafilter the general rule of thumb is reversed, "I don't have a point, but I'm sharing anyway."
at least for today.

The fact that I (as a 40k-something) actually knew something that a 20k-something didn't know makes me feel very, very special.

And then I realised how much that spoke for my lack of a life.

Dammit.

WILDEST HELL LINT NOW
