Examples of IBTL usage:
- IBTL! I think that the original poster above is an idiot for even suggesting that eugenics is a viable form of social control. Maybe he should try retroactive eugenics on himself.
- I think that any idiot should be allowed to be president, regardless of birthplace: it's the American way! Woot, IBTL!
- IBTL: I think a moderator should lock this thread immediately before it becomes any more juvenile. This is a site for mature adults, and hate-mongering discussions like this have no place in our community. Mods: please lock or delete this thread immediately.
- If I could post this ibtl: religious arguments like this do nothing for our community. You get to believe whatever you want to believe, but don't use our discussion site as a place to proselytize and recruit for your point of view.
The IBTL expression, like many cultural curiousities of the Internet, is a part of modern English communication.
