Reply Text Length Limitation

If I wish to a reply to a question or to someone who has replied to my question I seem to be limited to 1000 characters. I don't feel that this is adequate. Does there have to be a limit at all?

I have seen a couple other suggestions about this very thing. Have not seen any comment that it is being addressed. I agree that it (unnecessarily) limits one's ability to respond. The only way around it to post a new 'answer' or to create multiple, shorter comments in order to provide the information needed. I agree it is a very subjective and restrictive limitation of the new (and improved?) Q&A.

The reason for this is because we want comments to just clarify something vs. an answer that is to address the user's question. We understand this is not ideal, but allowing for very long comments creates other navigation challenges and it makes harder to make that difference.

This article explains the reasons behind this in more detail. Thank you for your suggestion!
