How long is too long?

Debate Information

The old expression: TLDR means "too long, didn't read."

I have to admit that sometimes, an argument ( ok, maybe a rant ) is too long and I don't read the whole thing.
I will generally like to read about 2 well worded paragraphs leading to a conclusion.

When I am confronted by a "wall of text", I get bored, my eyes hurt, and I lose interest. That's especially true when there is a Gish Gallop of many different ideas and claims in a rambling, "consciousness streaming" style argument that we usually have in here. But right now, I'm just asking about length. I dont know what the text limit is in words, but lets go by paragraphs.
