Where do people learn these things?

A phone conversation I had a few minutes ago (with the names changed, obviously):

"Hello, could you give me Ron Klein's email address, please?"

"It's Ron dot Klein at Percival dot com."

"Is that the wee 'at' symbol?"


"Is that the wee 'at' symbol or A-T, the word 'at'?"

"It's the 'at' symbol; it's an email address."

"Oh, yes, I know; it's just that a lot of them are using the actual word A-T now."
