+1. /say, /party, /guild and even /whisper should be granted a much larger characterlimit. What you do with the other channels does not really matter (to me anyway). I can imagine wanting to keep the character limit in the other channels limited to combat spam, but the limitations on direct lines of communication between people who are in the same guild, party or vicinity should be more lenient. It bothers no one and you'd make a whole bunch of people happy.
