Default Private message character limit?

Has anybody else encountered this? I just recently wrote up a private message that was over 5000 characters (5196 to be exact) and the site would not let me send it because it was over 5000 characters long. I'm pretty sure that I have sent PMs that were over 5000 characters long before and I didn't have a problem sending them. I'd like to know if anyone else has run into this. Is it recent or something old that I have just not encountered yet because my other PMs weren't actually over 5000 characters long? I can see it becoming a big hinderance and annoyance to a lot of us on the board.

Here is the message it gave me:
"The following errors occurred with your submission:
1. The text that you have entered is too long (5196 characters). Please shorten it to 5000 characters long.

That is correct, 5000 is the limit per message. I encountered that problem before when having conversations via PM and quoting the entire chain. Eventually I had to erase some of the earlier quotes in order to be able to send the PM.

Does this change have something to do with the new admin? Is there any way we can get them to change it? I honestly seen no point in having the limit. It seems absolutely pointless as far as I can think of.

I'm pretty sure it was like that before.

Yes I believe that was the limit before.

Seems like you guys are a bunch of chatty cathy's .. lol
I have upped the PM character limit to 8000 characters per message. Hopefully no one max's out now.
