  Text/Note/Annotation Maxlength rule is unnecessary

Status in Mahara:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  Mahara: 17.10.1
  OS: Ubuntu 16.04
  DB: Postgres
  Browser: FF

  When inserting a base-64 encoded image into a comment on a form, the
  user is presented with the following error:

  'This field must be 8192 characters long.'

  This rule validation is not really required because the DB field that
  it inserting into is a 'Text' type. Which basically means it's almost

  Postgres 7.1+ does have an upper limit at 1 Gb for a Text field.
  Mahara supports Postgres 9+.

  I do think it's safe to remove the maxlength rule for the Text, Note
  and Annoation fields.

  Please let me know your thoughts.
