This answer uses the well-known phrase "game zero", except it uses a numeric '0' (Game 0).

I had to read the line several times, before realizing what was being said. Then I even tried to edit the post to "fix" the o into a zero, before realizing what had happened.

Can we do something about this? Zeros are fairly ubiquitous in our hobby, so I expect this to come up a lot.

    \$\begingroup\$ For whatever reason the 0 is perfectly distinct on my phone. (Chrome, Android, both recent versions.) Maybe its system serif font is doing that. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Oct 12 '18 at 18:43

    \$\begingroup\$ Usually I'm able to guess what is meant based on context, but I can definitely agree that they look very similar in my desktop browser. \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Oct 13 '18 at 3:17
