What does YF stand for in online gaming?

You fail

Gamers use YF as shorthand for "you fail," when trash talking other gamers online. You're likely to encounter this acronym after you screw up, punt a game, or otherwise fail miserably.

Most often, you'll receive YF from ill-mannered opponents, who want to rub their victory and/or your lack of skill in your face. However, in some team games, you may end up receiving YF from your own teammates, if your noob-like actions cause your team to lose a game it otherwise would have won.
