How can I make my messages longer?

Every time I write a message or invite someone to be my friend, I get that my message is in error. It says that my message is too long, but I don't get it because pp send me long messages quite often. What's up w/that? Sometimes it's hard to get my point across w/ just 2 short sentences.LOL Please help.

  • I see that spaces between lines count as 2 characters. Is it possible that the longer messages you are getting are actually just regular size but have lots of spaces?

    Now that we have the counter on these messages it makes it much easier for me to watch how long my messages are.

  • Character counts include any font, size, color and bold formatting. Plain text takes less space as it is just text. For instance the words I wrote below here in the full editor, look like the text below that in plain text.

    full text like this 

    <p><em><span style="color: #000080;"><span style="font-size: 14px;"><span style="font-family: Comic Sans MS,cursive;">full text like this&nbsp;</span></span></span></em></p>
