I see my post was a tad polarizing.
It was slightly dickish...apologies to M Man. I had just gotten out of a 1 hr meeting that took 2 hrs because people like to hear themselves talk. So I think the idea of "get to the point" was fresh in my head.
I'm a fan of compromise - i'll limit my use of tl;dr, as long as others see the benefit of getting to the point. Wordiness isn't always effective, just as internet speak isn't always appropriate.
