Leaving your irc client connected to a server and sitting in channels even if you are not at the computer. This allows a group of users to stay in contact even if they are not active all the time.

Many misunderstand this concept and think idling means to stare at an inactive channel for hours on end but it just means leaving your client connected even if you aren't there or are doing other things.

Note: things like the following would not be possible if both users were not idling.
9:56am <user1> so user2 how are the girls?
1:12pm <user2> they are doing great! i just got home.
1:12pm <user1> thats good. tell them hi for me :)

The process that comes before wheeling. When someone is interested in a person of the apposite sex (or same sex) but feels it is still to early to begin the wheeling process.
friend: Jimmy was all over you!
other friend: yeah but i just feel like it's too soon to begin the wheels, i think i'm gonna try idling.

friend: you should totally wheel tommy!
other friend: no. i'm done with wheeling for now. too complicated. i think i'm going to idle for a while and see where it goes.

When a member of the male species swings his genitalia in a "windmill" fashion, while simultaneously getting anally violated.

In other words, it's when a dude whips his cock'n'balls around in a circular motion while getting boned in the rectal region. Or the ass.
Frank: "Dude, have you ever seen two guys idling?"

Copernicus: "Nah man, and I don't really want to."

Frank: "Shit, well then you probably shouldn't go to wowomg.com"
