When hurf durf is seen, it is understood that whatever has been quoted and labeled as hurf durf is completely and utterly unreasonable and impossible of being taken seriously.
Generally used when quoting someone, especially (but certainly not limited to) in the context of an internet game forum. Hurf durf occurs when someone goes on a long-winded tangent about something that is universally insignificant but is present in the original poster's mind and is EXTREMELY important to that person.

or general attack on the idea which was proposed.
Most often occurrences of hurf durf are unreasonable demands to alter a law or game mechanic so it will serve the needs of a very specific group, leaving all others effected at a disadvantage.
