YHBT is an acronym for "You Have Been Trolled". Frequently followed by YHL (You Have Lost), the more elegant YHL HAND (You Have Lost, Have A Nice Day) or the more hostile YHL FOAD (You Have Lost, Fuck Off And Die).

Used by noobs to indicate notable pwnage. It was coined by Kibo in 1994, making this exceedingly old. Later popularized by the Usenet newsgroup alt.fan.warlord.

Also the title of the first album released by Jesuitx of the GNAA. The trolls and fakesubs released by the animé fansub group Dattebayo often begin with [YHBT] rather than their typical [DB], making anyone who downloaded them feel like a dumbass afterwards.

This video is an accurate representation of a faggot.
