The verb „Wyatting“ appeared in some blogs and music magazines to describe the practice of playing unusual tracks on a pub jukebox to annoy the other pub goers, in particular Dondestan. Wyatt was quoted in 2006 in The Guardian as saying „I think it’s really funny“ and „I’m very honoured at the idea of becoming a verb.“ However, when asked if he would ever try it himself, he said: „I don’t really like disconcerting people, but even when I try to be normal I disconcert anyway.“ However Alfreda Benge said it made her angry and „that Robert should be used as a means of clever dicks asserting their superiority in pubs … It’s so unlike Robert, because he’s so appreciative of the strengths of pop music. So that, I think, is a real unfairness. The man who coined it, I should like to punch him in the nose.“
