XF 1.4 Maximum Message Length

I know I can set this to unlimited, but I am wondering if there actually will be a limit in the system anyway. Limited by the database, blob or something and if so how would the XenForo software behave if someone tried to make such a post?

The limit is, I believe, 16MB of text. It might well create a database error. You'd likely run into max packet size issues first actually.
