At present, you are limited to 240 characters when writing a comment to post on a video. This is frankly far too low.

It doesn't need to be some insane number. Something like 1000-ish characters would be a good way to allow more freedom in our comments, while still limiting comment size to a reasonable amount (so as to avoid people leaving long essays or some such).

If there are anti-ad/bot reasons for the low limit, then its even fine if you only allow the higher limit for premium or something. Although that would generate some complaints from free users, of course.

Its not like we need to be able to write out essays in our comments, of course. But 240 is just too low to even get more than 2 reasonable-length sentences reliably.

that's about the limit for some social media sites, just learn to phrase things better you'll be alright. it's not that big of a deal, most of the time it's spam or guest passing droppings anyways, or some sort of exposed spoiler or someone being weird/awkward.
