A change chit chat rules

I reckon a rules should be introduced such that no initial post in a thread should be longer than 500 characters and that each response should be shorter than the previous response.

Does that include spaces and punctuation.
Some people add large areas of space to add drama to their posts but others omit punctuation in order to avoid wasting valuable forum space..
