The content="ALL" part of the robots meta-tag is shorthand for content="index,follow" which means "index this page" and "follow links on this page".
You don't need to specify this in your meta-tags since they do all this by default anyway.
If you don't want the search engines to index your page, you change it to "noindex". If you don't want them to follow links on your page, you enter "nofollow". If you don't want them to index your page or follow your links, you can save a few characters of code by using the shorthand: 'content="NONE"'.
I would only bother with this tag if I didn't want search engines indexing the page or following links. Otherwise you can ditch it.
