What does BBOL stand for in online chat?

Be back on later

Gamers, especially, use BBOL to say they'll "be back on later." This means the player is going AFK for a bit, but they'll be BAK to play some games later today.

You may also encounter BBOL while chatting with someone in an online chat room or channel. When someone drops a BBOL in chat, they have to dip for now, but they'd be happy to resume your conversation when they return.
