Naming User Profile with @

Could someone please explain why you would use @ for the begining of a user profile? I  have several users under documents and settings that have profiles starting with @. For example "@kwsmith".

Thank you,

i would do this if i had to move user profiles around and needed to keep the "live" ones separated from the backup ones... and because directories starting with @ will be at the top of an alphabetical list

no technical reason to do it though, just preference and convenience
