I'm really surprised to see ~> get the most votes. It is quite difficult to distinguish from -> without putting my face close to the screen and my mom always yelled at me for sitting too close to the tv, so I'll probably have anxiety attacks if ~> is chosen...

      My concern isn't so much how it looks in my editor, but everywhere else. I doubt the internets are going to change their fonts just for us. Hopefully Perlmonks would, because that's where I was looking when trying to distinguish.

      In fact, look at this: ~ <---- without code markup

      and this: ~ <---- with code markup

      Without increasing my font size, I can just barely tell that the tilde is a tilde without the code markup. With the code markup, it is hopeless.
