Is there a known popular abbreviation for the equivalent so-called in English?

I have come accross this site a few times on the "so-called" abbreviation query, for I have been interested in it myself, for a while already. However, there still seems to be no clear cut answer, respectively solution offered. So, I'd like to suggest one option, following my experience using it, more frequently nowadays, rspct., a workaround for this. I want to admit right here, I have not dug the entire inet upside down on this. So, if anyone is willing to share a better way, how to go about this, I appreciate it much. :-)
I eventually introduce it to my texts first as so-called, within here it means pretentous, to claim without the ability and/or standing (law) to provide solid proof, further abbreviated as s.c. or s-c.
Also, a quick inet search unveiled, s.c. seems to be the least used abbreveation variation.
