tl;dr

The parts of a book are often listed for you by companies that want to print your book or assist you in writing a book so that you can publish it.

Games may have rule books that resemble a list

Too Long; Didn’t Read

tl;dr is an abbreviation for – to long; don’t read

It can also be used as a way to prompt someone to “get to the point.”

The other version of this is TLDR.

tl;dl (too long; didn’t listen) can also be used as an expression of displeasure at some song, or music that a person did not like.

tl;dw (too long;didn’t watch) can be used as an expression of displeasure at some video.

Media, Music, and Videos

While this abbreviation might seem silly, it is strangely true in many instances in the articles done here. Articles that are long–like a college text book might not be appreciated in the media presented in this blog.

It’s actually quite strange that people might hate a book when it’s handed over via twitter or a blog–and yet they don’t hesitate to buy the same thing for their kindle for example.

Perhaps the people have fallen into a mindset where they expect quick snacks to come via social media such as twitter, or blogs; or perhaps twitter, and blogs have a reputation of poor grammar, poor content,  low quality content, and advert style documents that end up to be a spam blog or con-jobs.

Some low quality content may be blamed on the spam articles that get sent out by the gazillions, and that too may explain a reluctance of people on the internet to bother reading long articles that end up being some dry boring advert or con-artist blurb.

It may surprise many people that quality book size articles are out there and they are free. Even more surprising is that some people will pay for a book to keep on their kindle rather then use the same, but less advertized book that’s available on the internet for free.

“Peoples behavior can be so complex–just saying.”
