Shorthand for too long; didn't read, TL;DR or TLDR is used as a response to another user's post when it is unreasonably long (often greater than three paragraphs). Unless the forum or online community is dedicated to short stories, forum etiquette states that users should keep their posts as short as possible.

Some people may also start or end a page or post with a TL;DR notice that is a short synopsis of what they've typed because they realize it may be too much text for some people.
