"Too Long; Didn't Read" - a shining example of the sweeping Attention Deficit Disorder pandemic that seems to have embraced our society. Usually said by people who a) have never read a book, b) have no logical retort, c) want an easy laugh, or any combination of the three. Not to be confused with "TMS;DU", meaning "Too Many Syllables; Don't Understand", which is likely how some of you reading this feel about this definition.
Spanky - "I find it hilarious that any definition of TL;DR condeming those who use it as uneducated morons, are the ones receiving more thumbs down - just like this one probably will - even though they are the most accurate. That just further proves that people - especially kids - have a consistantly dwindling attention span, most likely indirectly proportional to the amount of media and entertainment devices we feel the need to constantly plug ourselves into."
Spunky - "... TL;DR"
Spanky - "Are you sure it wasn't TMS;DU?"
Spunky - "... l0zz0rs, pwned."

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.
