well not everybody can afford broadband(tries to think of people who cant?). But if you think about the math, 100kb 10 posts(default) per page. Thats 1mb of extra data every time you load a page, now that will slow it down page loading for most people who don't have a 6 megabit line. But i don't know maybe it's worth a shot to raise the limit, but i have broadband so i think it is only fare that those people on VT that don't should get to have there say considering they will be the ones most affected.
