What does BBML stand for in online chat?

Be back much later

Someone who sends you BBML will "be back much later." Typically, you'll receive this acronym during an online chat session, when the person you're talking to has to go AFK for quite a while.

Receiving BBML might be a good prompt for you to disconnect and go touch grass yourself. If you and the person you were talking to happen to both be online later, you can resume your chatversation then.
