Fodors has (once again) raised the length (word count) limit per posting.
 
See http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...p;tid=34414796

Clearly over a thousand words now permitted to a posting. How much above that? I don't know.

Best wishes,

Rex

I also like the ability to preview before you post...so you can edit!

My theory is that if you can't keep it short and to the point I won't read it. I skip over anything that looks like the Declaration of Independence.

Arguments about terse vs. comprehensive have been mounted here for a long time. Casual readers are rarely interested in lengthy answers - - but those who ask questions - - especially multiple broad answers are surely very appreciative for a well-organized reply with lots of content.

The answer from Daphne, on the thread cited above, is a very good example of a lengthy - - but incredibly useful - - answer to the person who asked the question(s).

Well, it'll be easier for trip reports.

BTW, the Declaration of Independence could fit on just 2 posts now ... it's only a bit more than 1,300 words without the signatures. ;-)

Nope, if it is an interesting post, such as a well written travel report, I don't care how long it is. If you get bored you can just scroll down and let the rest of us read the details.

What is the hurry anyway? Where are you rushing to that you can't read a long post? Europe?

I like the new links that made it easy to email the thread and jump to the latest reply. Very handy -- thank you, fodors!
