Where did that come from all of a sudden? And why? That gives us at best 170 or so words per post, which is about 15-25 sentences. That prevents any sort of lengthy discussion. _______________ For the record, the above text contains four sentences, 34 words, and 177 characters. In terms of the character limit, that gives us 26 sentences and 227 words. However, this may be offset since "and why?" was one of the sentences. the average English word is 5 characters, and the average sentence is 14 words. Including spacing and punctuation, this gives us at least 90 characters per sentence. In turn, this allows us 13 sentences. So clearly this is stupid. And I have a feeling this is too many characters. Edit: Surprisingly, it was only 703. If it were twice as long, it would be almost 15% too long by your standards.
