America On-Line (AOL)

One of the most popular Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Derided by Internet old-timers to whom AOL represents the mass of clueless Internet users with no sense of etiquette or courtesy.

Also a synonym for "Me, too!" -- a joke on the fact that many AOL users often clog up bulletin boards with pointless "Me, too!" postings. See the Jargon File entry for more.
