I am also bothered by these but, since so many others seem to like them, 
I generally keep mum about it.

As much as I dislike them, my wife -- who barely tolerates my Corvair 
habit in general -- nearly spits when she reads the word "Vairs" in 
print.  She pronounces 'Vairs' with the same wincing, pained voice, and 
saliva output used by Doug Niedermeyer when chewing out "Flounder" in 
the movie Animal House...."Did you say, 'Vvvvvvvirtual Vvvvvvvvvvvairs', 

As a group, I guess we can console ourselves with the thought that the 
only thing fruitier than saying 'Vair' is saying 'Stang'.
