So, I've run into a problem of being auto notified that I have too many characters in a post. This also happens if I've replied to a long post. So, I'd like to know how others are apparently getting around the limit. For instance http://www.debatepolitics.com/relig...ve-we-living-end-times-17.html#post1065715299 Post # 166 is pretty long, and there others that we've all seen that just essays. The limit breaks momentum and not suggesting removing the limit, I'd just like to know how such long posts are possible?

I just usually break it up into two posts. I think the character limit is pretty damn annoying. I would actually like to see it be removed because it happens almost daily that I run into my posts being too long. But yea, I just usually break it up into two posts.

The post you noted is less than the maximum characters per post.
