"too long; didn't read."
1. The inability to accept, understand or pay attention to information when not separated by a header.
2. The ability to arbitrarily read 400 small posts but not a long one.
3. A sign of ADD or lack of reading capability.
4. A very cheap response and an indication of lack of wit.
5. 90% of the time: A lie.
6. A desperate attempt at a comeback used by people who just can't think of one.
7. Usually used by people who've been torn apart verbally but want one last attempt at looking witty.
8. Total failure at #7.
7. A sign that, not only is someone too lazy and stupid to read but, clearly, too lazy and stupid to even type out four words indicating such.
9. Collect every "tl,dr" post online, and you'll have a good estimate of the number of lazy idiots on Earth, who currently have Internet access.
10. Should really be:
"Too Lazy, Don't Read."
or,
".....I got nut'n!"

...Right, well, as believable as that is, you've got time. Just sound the bigger words out. Now I can see why your friends say you're so "smart".

a term originating from forums and text messages in respons to ebscenely long forum posts or texts. means 'too long, didn't read.' the original use has died out however, and it is now only ever used by argumentative cunts who have been outargued and don't want to admit it. as uch, it's current meaning (which would be the corrupted phrase) is 'can't think of an argument, gonna pretend i couldn't be arsed to read it.'
man 1: ...so yeah. learn your stuff, man, you're making yourself look stupid

man (?) 2: (thinks) shit, that's a damn good argument! i got nothin'! unless...

(types) tl;dr

Too long, didn't read. Alternatively, "War and Peace".
My teacher wanted us to read "War and Peace", but I was all like "tl; dr".

short for 'too long; didn't read'

the phrase though is used the wrong way and idiots all over the internet tend to overuse this after every fucking sentence they make.
example 1:i got caught fapping yesterday morning
TL;DR I got caught fapping
example 2: i took a crap to myself while in bed.Long story short, i shit myself asleep
TLDR; I shit myself.

Too Long; Don't Read. Most commonly used in forums when there is a "Wall of Text" (A very long, typed message/ comment/ story, etc.).
Poster 1 says: "Blah blah blah, blah blah..."(continued for 500-1000 more blahs)

Poster 2 says: "TL;DR! Damn, just blog it and stop wasting forum space!"

Too long: Didn't read

The bastian of the stupid and lazy. Only those of no intelligance would bother to use this, as if you are unable to read a post, then you should not bother even replying to begin with.
Clacker: tl:dr
Me: Lazy bastard.

An internet abbrviation for: Too long; didn't read. Only something a lethargic and obviously illiterate person would use.
StandOffish768: TL;DR
Me: Yeah, you just don't wanna read what ELSE I put in there about you, jackass....
