Maybe I haven't been very clear. Consider the following as a commit message:

This part of the commit message will be posted. Regardless of the number 
of sentences or apparent number of lines.

#This part of the commit message will not be posted. Even though there 
appears to be several lines here, the Python code only sees one. 
Therefore a single # at the beginning of the paragraph will cause this 
whole paragraph to be scrubbed, regardless of the length. Thus, until 
you have made a few thousand commits you will really not be hitting 
shift-3 that often...

But if you add a newline, the next bit will be posted.

#Unless you comment that part out as well.
