Hello All,

As a linguist, I can say that not counting words that are shorter is an 
absolute NO-GO
for an accurate word count and thereby character count!

See below, for a non representative proof !

word length under 4 characters  :   10
word length =< 4 chars                 :   20

here you are missing a third of the words! That is 30%
