Saying "gf" when you win 15 to 0 (or 40 to 5) is generally seen as "rubbing it in" and plenty of people use it with exactly that intended meaning. Similarly, if my team gets totally crushed I don't say "gg" because, well, it wasn't. If I lose 40 to 38 or 15 to 14 or something then it's time for "gg".
A good gamer hates to lose. Show me someone who's good at losing gracefully and I'll show you someone who's been getting a little too much practice at it.
I am with Slamz on this one. Out of the 15 matches I had today I think, only three were worthy of "gg".
