I find it annoying and confusing when people write "FFT", which stands for "fast Fourier transform", when they really mean "discrete Fourier transform", which is abbreviated "DFT". The FFT is a specific algorithm for computing the DFT. When I see "FFT" in a question, it makes my brain prepare for a discussion about efficient DFT-finding algorithms and computer implementations, but in almost every single case the question asker really just wants to know something about the DFT.
This error is similar to someone asking "How does a Buick work" when they really want to know how any car works.
I'm inclined to aggressively edit posts to fix this, but I wonder what everyone else thinks. Should be try to be consistent and specific about the different meanings of FFT and DFT?
