As part of our unending effort to quash free speech, we at
segfault.org are cracking down on the most egrerious instances of
comment abuse. From now on, comments that render to over 6K long will
not be accepted by the database. This puts an end to the practice of
putting lots of
s (which the render code treats specially) in comment text, making the associated story pages really long and impossible to view.
To destroy the rights of those who have already posted such messages, the rendering code has been changed such that multiple
s will be folded into one
. There is no escape from the oppressive iron fist of tag-folding which we wield with an iron fist.
Any further attempts at segfault.org comment abuse will require spamming, which nobody is willing to defend.
