HBAFK = Here But Away From Keyboard

This term is sometimes used to denote that a user is present but essentially AFK (away from keyboard). This usually applies when somebody is playing a game, watching a movie, or doing something else that prevents them from being able to receive and reply to some form of messages within a reasonable period of time.
