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

    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?

    no dude

    returning banned member

    someone that is currently banned/vacationed from anandtech creates a 2nd/3rd account to get on the forums and post while their real/primary account is locked out

    HFS+ is an anandtech member

    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.
