Earlier, I did a WHOIS search on the IP of the anonymous Wikipedia user who made the original entry that set the ball rolling on this rumor. The search came back with very little info, tracing the IP address to Comcast Cable Communications, Inc. EASTERNSHORE-1 /Comcast Cable Communications ILLINOIS-14. I don't even know what that means.

The information has since been removed from Wikipedia as 'unfounded speculation'. I have done some quick research and am fairly certain that the source for the Wikipedia entry was an article posted this afternoon on /Film. I just got to my computer a few minutes ago and so I've had very little time to dig deeper. I'll keep you posted as I look into it. Stay tuned...
Update: So sorry. I got my facts all wrong on this. Upcoming Pixar was the source for the /Film story. Among other things, Upcoming Pixar's time stamp got me confused. Sorry again.

This whole time I've been spelling it as Wall-E, as if it were a proper hyphenated name and not the acronym for "Waste Allocation Load Lifter -Earth-class" that it is. Why? Well, as I said, laziness. Never bothered to think too much about it, really. Also, I subconsciously hate spelling anything in ALL CAPS (childhood trauma).
So, now you know.
(Do expect me to switch to the standard spellings of WALL-E or WALL•E in the near future.)
