Okay, someone give me your knowledges, because for absolutely no reason, this is bugging the FUCK out of me:

Is "DDoS" pronounced "Dee-Dee-Oh-Ess" or "Dee-Doss"?

I've NEVER heard anyone say the latter before, but in an interview on Marketplace just now, John Markoff kept saying "Dee-Doss" over and over, and it was like fingernails down a chalkboard to me.

Am I justified in wanting to reach through the ether and smack him, or have I just been hearing the wrong voices in my head all this time?



NOTE:  Yes, yes I know there is no "correct" form for an individual's preference of pronunciation of an acronym...  I guess...    But damnit, it just sounds WRONG.
