AFOL stands for "Adult Fan Of LEGO".

From an unofficial LEGO acronym glossary:

AFOL

Adult Fan of LEGO. The most common term used to refer to LEGO fans who are adults. Generally pronounced to rhyme with “hay-foal”.

Or from Brickipedia's glossary (also unofficial):

AFOL - Adult Fan Of LEGO

I saw that meaning before asking, but it didn't explain the way afol tag is being used. Is there another meaning, or is the tag usage incorrect? –  Dori Oct 26 '11 at 4:22

The only question using that tag at the moment isn't really about adult fans. –  Joubarc Oct 26 '11 at 4:27

I'd say that it was a case of incorrect tag use - perhaps the OP considers themselves an AFOL, and tagged it as such? –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Oct 26 '11 at 9:02
    
Thanks, all: I was wondering what it was I was missing, and the answer was that I wasn't! –  Dori Oct 26 '11 at 10:04
