TLDR: What it means and why I use it

TLDR, or TL;DR stands for Too Long, Didn’t Read.

Some people like reading long posts with background info, analysis, anecdotes, etc. Others don’t like long posts, or don’t have the time to read them. I’ll be using TLDR occasionally┬áto indicate a summary of a longer article and sometimes suggest an action to take. It may help you decide whether you want to read the whole post.
