An acronym which stands for "Get A Blog, You Attention Whore".
Most commonly used for the girls who put photos on jailbaitgallery.com who post items to communities or forums that would be more suited to a personal LJ (or blog).
User A is a member of knitting. User A posts to knitting to talk about how they are going to Finland.
Of course, they knit in Finland, too, but that's not the point of their post to the community, and they don't even mention knitting in the post, they just want an audience.
User B gets first comment, and decides to make it count, thusly: "GABYAW."
