It's *an* FSA.


I've always been confused about this. Do you count it as the acronym, or as if the acronym is actually replacing the full words? I would think, at least in some cases, it would depend on the writer's intent.

Cpt, I'm not calling you anything, but this is kinda directed to you... If you feel like bragging about ANYTHING on the internet, you'd better make sure you have impeccable grammar. I noticed a HUGE problem with your very first post.

It's *an* FSA.


I'm talking about a Flexible Spending Account I'm not sure what you think I'm talking about. It is definitely not 'an'.

I've never known anyone who sees an acronym and reads it by substituting the words. That's against the entire purpose of am acronym.
Read this: ...from the NAACP

Who here can honestly say they read it as "from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People"?

Or this: Here's my ID

Much shorter, standing for only one word. Even then I don't buy it. It says ID and you read it as ID.

You suck at trolling.


Frankly, I have to agree. I'd have gone with how obsessed with their stats and K/D they all are and then, when in the face of someone whose K/D obliterates theirs, they cry about how padded his are. The hypocrisy would have been a better insult here, not the "no ilfer" business.


it's not hypocrisy...nobody on this board boosts their KD.

you're not a good troll either.

But that's wrong. You don't say "I'm an PTSD victim."

It's the first sound the word makes. If it's a vowel sound, you use "an," else "a."
