No worries.

Very surprising. I feel Confluence has confused the meaning of ~ and @, especially if ~ markup is rendered as @ in the HTML view.

Well, I just intended to indicate what I wrote when things started to become an in-wiki-dicussion. That could be a link to my user or not, does not matter.

I think it diverges from the intention when Confluence renders / treats it as a “mention” since that generally has the opposite semantic meaning (uncommon to mention yourself).

Yes, that is probably closer to the original intention. As long as it does not impact Confluence “Page history”.

Thanks for your great work!
