User lost most of his discussion text when trying to post

Here's the description of the problem:

We have Vanilla version

Any ideas of what could have caused this, and how to avoid it in the future?

    Look at Spam settings in Dashboard, and change maximum comment length :-)

    Thanks for pointing that out :)

    However, that doesn't really solve the mystery, since if a comment hits the limit set on that page, Vanilla won't allow you to post, saying something like "Body is 12603 characters too long." in red. This doesn't reload the page, and doesn't make you loose your text - you're given the chance to edit it to make it shorter.

    The problem reported here involves loosing most of your original text, and having no warning message about that, so I believe it was caused by something else.

    I suggest to set big limit and try it first.
    As far as I remember actually code has trim command, so this is also related to this setting.
