Default What's RBM mean?

In this thread:
http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2236299

Quote:
is a guy gay if he listens to the backstreet boys?

RBM HFS+
admin allisolm
admin allisolm wrote RBM HFS+? I looked it up on urban dictionary but it says rbm=raped by men and hfs = holy fucking shit so I guess the admin must have meant something else?

If it does mean raped by men what does that mean? Does it have a figurative meaning?





Answer given and thread is now locked

i can see how the content of the OP may have made those other defs seem to fit the context though

The result of creating another account while banned also increases the chances of not posting for a long long time under the original account.

What one has done is demonstrate that they do not want to obey the rules here and consider themselves above the "law".

Remember the song, "I fought the law and the law won"
That is what usually happens here.

There is no law here, it's forum guidelines as laid out by the site owner or his appointed representative.

RBM should really be EBM (Existing Banned Member) as some seem to have had secondary accounts for years.

Any idea why I put the word law in quote marks?
