Make the Description Limit Exceeded warning less disruptive.
As you might see from my title, I tend to use up my maximum number of characters. However, when you reach the limit in a description, it launches a warning window, and then puts your cursor at the beginning of the description. I'd suggest something more like Twitter, that allows you to fill an additional buffer so you can finish your thought and then go back and edit it down once you're done. Don't let someone publish a suggestion until they get down below the character limit. But don't disrupt their writing so severely as soon as they go over.

I've had it happen a couple times when it gives the warning, and without thinking I've hit backspace to re-format the last paragraph to get it under the limit, causing the browser to go back and loose what I've typed. I wouldn't mind a larger limit too. Sometimes you need more than 750 characters if you've got multiple points.
It has not only disrupted my comment but deleted it all together when that limit is hit, so that really hurts!! :( especially when it happens more than once!!! very discouraging! *whine*
Good idea! Thanks. I agree with you.
