Anonymous:I've always pronounced Ms as "muzz".
Frankly I've never liked Ms because it's a horrible sound, and really hate being wrongly labelled Ms myself. If I didn't know which title someone preferred I think I would forego the title completely and simply write "Dear Forname Surname".

Anonymous:Hey guys that really helps (Ms), to know that most of you guys think it just a neautral title, and anyone should use if they feel like, I like to use the title Ms, I think it is unique, I didn't know the meaning, I just got hooked on it!! To me it is more like to remain anonimous.

Anonymous:I am probably giving my age, but so what! In the 1960s there was a move for women to use the title of "Ms." pronounced "mz." It is based on the fact that "Mr." does not tell whether or not a man is married. However, the titles of "Mrs." and "Miss" do tell whether or not a woman is married. But why should women have to let that be known? Afterall, men do not! Let's show equality in this idea of using titles! Therefore, to be equal and politically correct, we should all use Ms. for women.
And for another note: Prior to the correct title of "Ms." I was always taught in school that if a woman is married and her husband is living, she would use his name. Example: Mrs. John Smith. If he was deceased or if she was divorced, then she could use Mrs. Sue Smith. Of course this is now thought of as antiquated thinking.
To sum it up, remember that a woman does not need to be married to gain respect nor does she have to show whether or not she is married in her title. Everyone should use "Ms." when addressing a woman.
Woman are EQUAL!
