It is for _me_! BTW, it'll be too soon when I see another instance of
FAQ's, DVD's, and/or CPA's to denote the plural form of each.

We don't write "TV's" (an all-too-common acronym), nor do people read
"TV's" (except when it's possessive or in error), so why the insistence
on adding the apostrophe on the plural form of acronyms?
