What does WN stand for?

Why not

WN is an acronym that stands for "why not," which is commonly used online and in text messages. It is another way of asking "why?" when responding to a person's claim/statement.

WN may be seen as an annoying response to those that don't want to take the time to explain their reasoning or thought process. However, the acronym is more often used because of curiosity instead of the purpose of annoyance.
