For some wordpress themes it is very useful to limit comments to a certain amount of characters. WordPress does not offer such an ability therefore I wrote this small plugin to limit the length of the comments.

Thank Me Later

Thank Me Later is a plug-in which will automatically send a thank you email to readers after they post a comment. It can be set to send the message a time after the comment was posted (an hour, day, week, month, etc). It is effective as it will remind readers of their comments and gets them engaged with future discussion and your blog. It is useful to attract “one-time” readers who will post one comment, and then forget about your blog.
