What is z short for?


Z is an abbreviation for "zero" that is typically used online. It reduces the word to just one character, but you could argue that "0" would be better, and you're probably right.

Since "Z" could stand for many other things besides "zero", it's not a very good abbreviation and you should probably refrain from using it. And for some "Zorro" enthusiasts, it would be ultra confusing since the masked man often signed his name with just a "Z".
