Please what is the point in Write Only Memory you may as well just throw it
to /dev/null. (Although if you need the data else where a printer would work
but then you would be reading it and that would not be write only!)

Usally WOM stands for Write Once Memory ie certain types of Read Only Memory
(ROM) or CD Roms and the Like. Which is completely different. Like many of
these terms its meaning less. ie ROM is also RAM but would be better named
RWM (Read/Write Memory)
