alrighty then... first are we talking about letter W's here? or is it some kind of graphical representation? and is the full stop in it or just punctuation?

Would it work as w-w-w-w.

Is it representing a Phrase? a name? well known? title of a book? an event? a song? or a piece of music?

Do three of the W's mean "world wide web"?

Is this one of those "dingbat" puzzles where you have to literally say what you see (eg "Math The" represents "The aftermath" because it is the word "the" after the word "math")?

The irony in this acronym is that, even in a Texas accent, it's faster to say "who what when where" than "double-u double-u double-u double-u."

"World wide web" has a similar issue.
