What does GALMA stand for?

Go away, leave me alone

Most people use GALMA when arguing via online messages or texting. Typically, GALMA comes out when someone's feelings get hurt, and they want the offender to leave them alone. Or, their feelings get hurt, and they tell off any concerned parties with GALMA.
