"My comments": truncation causes truculence? February 1, 2006 10:03 AM   Subscribe

I'm not sure of this is a bug or a feature, but I've noticed that in "My Comments" long comments are cut off. If it's a bug: "Hey Matt, I found a bug!" If it's a feature...well I suppose I see the logic, so whatever.

It's a feature. In that thread, Matt says the limit is 8000 characters. Don't know if it's still true.

Yep, due to the nature of the monster sql join, the full text couldn't be pulled out, just the limits of a varchar field, which is around 8000 characters, or a couple thousand words.
