Update of bug #49971 (project wget):

                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix               
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

The ~ expansion a a (POSIX) shell feature, not a wget feature.
If you use such a shell and want it to expand ~ into your home directory, do
not quote. 

Same with other tools:

$ touch ~/image.jpg
$ rm rm "~/image.jpg"
rm: cannot remove '~/image.jpg': No such file or directory
