I believe everyone has ran into it at one point or another: there's a heated debate below someone's opinion, however, due to limitation of 1000 characters, a person must split his response into numerous parts and post them one by one in rapid succession.
That brings a few downsides:
1.) Annoys the user: obviously, splitting your thoughts as they keep coming into parts isn't exactly a pleasant process; moreover, such practice disrupts the thinking process.
2.) Annoys opinion owner, as (I believe) he's getting numerous notifications about the response from the same user.
3.) In reference to point #1, it cripples thinking process by kinda giving an upper hand to short opinions/explanations.
Just add a feature that whenever your response to an opinion exceeds the limit of 1000 characters, a user must "pay" xper points to go over the limit; N amount of xper points for each extra 500 characters. Inform the user that he may post his response at the expense of his xper, if he truly wants to post such a long post.
Make it happen, dammit :P

Sure why not. But I'll stick to sending them separately not worth deducting xper points and my point still gets across.0

Sounds like a good idea to my verbose self.0
