The word was used originally in starcraft. Although not many know this word, it is there. If one says alt+f4 to another it means get the fuck out. alt+f4 is pressed to instantly exit a program and so it came to be that if one says alt+f4 to someone else, it means they should leave. People will trick n00bs into pressing alt+f4 if they seem to bother one.
1. Ok i think you should alt+f4.
2. Press alt+f4 its a cheat.
3. JUST alt+f4 YOUR ASS OUT OF HERE.

Often used to discourage n00bs, this is often said while playing a game or talking in a chat room. Usually results in never seeing the n00b again.
n00b: I JUST WON A GAME!
Player: Press Alt + F4 please.
