Cannot Post > Too Many Characters error

I tried to copy/paste a post and was unable to because the post contained too many characters.

I went to an online character counter, determined the post had 30,440 characters. I changed my Maximum Message Length to 40,000 just so I could submit this post. Then I received an error stating I could not submit the message because it has more then 40k characters. I bumped the Max Msg Length to 50k, same issue.

I tried another online character counter and confirmed the 30,440 character count. This message contains no images, only text. Is this a bug?

I copied the text beginning with Keywords and ending at the bottom with World info.

Are you using the WYSIWYG editor or the plain text editor?

Try switching to plain text to remove any formatting tags.

You offer great wisdom!

The links to the many keywords were huge containing a long Google Translate URL. I removed them and the post saved just fine.
