The term was born as frequent threats of police and FBI intervention were made during the YTMND Forums' raids on Natalee Holloway sites in summer of 2005. "BRBFBI" was first coined by Inkdrinker.

- Something someone has done that is impressive enough to warrant special attention.

- This slang is used in the comments of a YTMND that has been repeatedly dugg or has gotten an insurmountable amount of views. It reminds others on the site of the YTMND How to Prank a Telemarketer, the most top viewed YTMND on the website that drew much more attention than it was worth.
- Lawl, Lul

- Often written in large capital letters and bold red font, occasionally with several extra A's and unneccessary punctuation (e.g., RAAAAAAAAAAGED!!!), RAGED describes a person who has lost their cool in a conversation on the internet. The forum or IRC user who succeeds in angering or "raging" another while consistently maintaining their own composure is usually seen as the dominant party in the conversation. The origin of this is probably from Final Fantasy VIII, in which one of Seifer's 2 goons says very little throughout the game. She is most remembered by saying "RAGED" and kicking another character in the shin.
- Common internet reference to the browser standard replacement image for missing or broken links to images on web pages. A small characteristic X is displayed in red inside of an inset placeholder box, with an equally characteristic default size. Recognizable by anyone who has ever used a popular web browser for a long enough period of time, the red-x is occasionally used for comedic value in images, on forums, and so on.
