articles indicating how writer reads abbreviations

It's always amusing to pay attention to people's articles, to see how they're internally reading abbreviations.

e.g.:
I've got an LJ. ("an el jay")
I've got a LJ. ("a LiveJournal")

But sadder, this article. I believe the only correct pronounciation of LOLcat is "lawlcat", never "el oh el cat". I suspect the original writer of the article had a clue, then an editor came along and "fixed" the article.
