If ABCDEF = QWERTY, then:

1 Q W E R T Y U I O P = A B C D E F G H I J
2 A S D F G H J K L = K L M N O P Q R S
3 Z X C V B N M = T U V W X Y Z

So RGXWSTLSQLITL becomes

DOUBLESLASHES.

    $\begingroup$ @NL628 You can, but you certainly aren't expected to. I've already upvoted your answer. In fact, having multiple good answers makes us more likely to hit the HNQ and make more rep out of this ;-) (not that I need it, but ...) $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Feb 18 '18 at 19:18

    $\begingroup$ @NL628 Hey, I'm trying to get you more rep here! :-P I've already got two PSE answers on HNQs right now, so this one is probably just going to mean wasted upvotes anyway. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Feb 18 '18 at 19:21

    $\begingroup$ FWIW, I don't view an identical answers created within seconds of another as a duplicate that need deletion, and generally make it a point to upvote both of them. It's different when the answers are separated by hours or even days, though (often by someone new). $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Feb 19 '18 at 0:30

The answer is:

DOUBLESLASHES

Because

Counting from the top of the keyboard, replace each letter with the correspondingly positioned letter in the alphabet.
