They  most likely mean that the people who are running it are AOLers, and for
some reason the belief on the Net is that there is a much larger concentration
of idiocy on AOL then on the rest of the net. As to the truth of that, I won't
comment except to say that I'd had to site ban AOL in my IRC channel more
then I can count.
"In the end, I wonder if one of the most important steps on our journey is
the one in which we throw away the map. In jettisoning the grinds and
brambles of our own preconceptions, perhaps we are better able to find the
real secrets of each place; to remember that we are all extensions of our
collective history."
