Meaning of PLOX

What Does PLOX Mean?

The word PLOX means "please". It derives from the contraction PLS, which later became PLZ and PLX (as it seems cooler than PLS and PLZ).

Of interest, the letter X is often used to end a contraction. This is a bleed-over from Mathematics, where the variable X can represent anything. (For example, RX and TX are often used as shorthand for receive and transmit respectively.)

Of note, PLOX is commonly used by the online gaming community, who have given PLOX the connotation of "please in a stupid, begging voice".
