Will,
What was the goal of, or reasoning for, this quite significant change?

Hi bob the moo,

The goal was to encourage more reviews being added to the site - the previous 10 line limit was considered too long.

Will,

This is an excellent decision taken by IMDb. Now we can see a lot more reviews from our users.

Thanks for the heads up.
