Preventing Comments from being Over Max Length
Short, concise description of the idea
Since (last I checked) comments are limited to a certain # of characters, make the comment boxes "stop" the users from typing if they reach the limit.
Full description of the idea
People (including me) get wordy at times. So far, if I have more than x number of characters to say, I get this screen saying to shorten it... sometimes, I can go back and retrieve the old comment, but I think that is a fluke considering it only works about 5% of the time. I've tried with 2 browsers on different computers, and it just doesn't do it for me. Anyway, instead of having to retype it all, would it be possible to make comment boxes like forms I have seen elsewhere that will make an icky ding sound and stop accepting characters if you go over the limit? I don't really like the comment character limit, but I figure this is easier to implement and subject to no abusive 50k character comments.
