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.

The four letters that gets an investigative journalist responding with gfym or grym as the response isn't exactly safe work work, it also pisses off short story writers who write in the same range as The Tell-Tale Heart or the mid-range of 4000-6800 words. It's the response that we ask if you read "The Frog And Toad Together" in the park in your 40s. The grym response was done by The Cabbie Homicide writer on VampireFreaks.
troll: tl;dr
writer: grym

troll: Shit did he just say go rape my mother.

This is an alternative way to understand tl;dr

So usually it's a response to a long-winded written explanation that someone posts online. But it can also be used as a brief summary of something at the top of a post for readers who don't have time to go through the whole thing

For example: My trip to Europe

tl;dr - I went to Europe, I ate cheese, danced with beautiful woman, hooked up with a man and had a unexpected boat trip.

Full post
On 21 January I got the itch to travel, so I spontaneously booked a trip to Europe... insert rest of post
Friend who got a job interview: I’m very excited. Also cautious.
Me: whats the tl;dr

Means Too Long; Didn't read. Controversial to use it. If one is uneducated on it's meaning, it could be taken as a noise of frustration after an especially tedious, angry, and/ or cringy rant.
*insert tedious, angry, and cringy rant possibly delivered by someone who just came im close contact with death but emerged with a BURNING VENGEANCE*

TL;DR

F*** YOOOOOOOU

Too Lazy; Didn't Read
tl;dr originally meant "Too long; didn't read" the abbreviation is often used by people who just can't be bothered to read a piece of text. Many now see the term as meaning "Too Lazy; didn't read"" as a result of misuse.
