This entire post is painful to read. Just because a lot of people do it, does not mean it is correct.
I think he's trying to make a point. None too subtly, but I, too, am pretty tired of misused apostrophes in plurals, although it's easy to slip up and do it now and then by mistake (I almost did so in this sentence!). I blame (without evidence) the origin of this problem on the NYT Stylebook, which says you use an apostrophe to form a plural in an acronym. Why? Is HUD's really more plural-looking than HUDs?
