Were you trying to access the legit-comic
on Aniverse? If so, yeah - Aniverse's servers block AOLers due to some long-lasting problems with DDOS attacks and probably something else i'm not aware of. The only know way to get around that is by using a Java
(jIRC) client found on the web, and I haven't tested that in a while, either. It does suck. We're looking into finding another solution, but unless the channel is moved again, it doesn't look likely.
Darth was posting text from the Nightstar #avalon
channel, which is probably more what you're looking for, but it has no official association with Avalon
or the Aniverse channel, which makes my response here pointless. Though if Nightstar has also banned AOL users, I wouldn't be surprised.
