How about when it reaches twice (or 3x) the original length?

Or maybe whoever starts a new page starts a new sentence?

Or 20 and out, or 3X length, whichever comes first? We just need a better system than someone just randomly starting a new sentence.

Either way works for me. 20 and out would be easier to track.

Let's try 20 and see how it works. If it feels like there's still good play left after 20 we can always choose a higher number later on if that seems reasonable.

Here's the next sentence:

Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

Question not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

So that's three votes for 20 and out. Anyone else?
