JCL(redirected from J.C.L.)
An initialism of "Johnny-come-lately," referring to someone who is new to some group, situation, or activity, especially that which has been around for a long time. The abbreviation is only used in writing. A: "So, what do you think of Greg's promotion?" B: "Frankly, it's a bunch of BS that they gave it to a JCL like him." I know I'm just a JCL on this forum, but I have some opinions about the way some of the more veteran members have been acting lately.
