Not for that reason.
I asked [LINK:] how long a subject line could be because I wanted to use a subject line that included a long movie title in one of the weekly POTN challenges. CyberDyne did the 12345... thing to find out. I had expected that the maximum length would be "written down" somewhere in the administrative pages and a mod could just look it up or might even have it memorized. Sorry to cause you the extra work, CyberD.
Extremely strong hints--hell, the first one was an outright explanation--appeared here and here. Some awfully smart people missed them somehow.
We saw them, it was more fun to make smart assed comments

Probably to make sure that an export of all posts to the upcoming POTN forum software that Pekka has written will go smoothly without subject lines destroyed.
AMASS has longer "limits" for titles, 150 characters is max lenght of a (UTF-8) title. All text including titles is (invisibly) hyphenated for better wrapping and for very long words an extra space is inserted every 200 chars.

I can add that to the list of odd characters that I have met online.

how do you know if you have been here too long. when you read a post like this and you want to see what's at the end.
