If so it can be changed. My experience was that very rarely messages hit the 50k limit. Mostly verbose conference promotions.

Yes, there is a max_message_size preference (maximum size of message body), and it's currently set to 50KB.

Only one message has exceeded that limit that I've see so far (it was replete with images and html, and was a conference flyer).

In terms of moderations and restrictions, Link only accepts plain text, and blocks attachments, too. 

I do not regard this as moderation, or a restriction on the activities of Link. Others might disagree.
