There isn't a particular part of the website that says long comments are not
allowed, Its just I have never really scene any monster sized comments on
tasks before, and I didn't want to go posting something really huge. I was
worried there might be some kind of unwritten rule, and I didn't fancy
getting my throat jumped down so I thought I was playing safe by posting to
the mailing list.
