Why is there a max character count for linking Steam accouts?

Question

My Steam account name is one letter longer than the maximum character count for linking to the account I just made. Seems to be built using the same forum tools as the LinusTechTips forum but I didn't have any problem linking my Steam account there. I assume the limit was placed to prevent linking to spam accounts, but mine is just a bit long: ZacLawrenceRupnow.

Extremely late, but I changed the character limit to 26. This may cause a display issue if you use the full 26 characters, but it isn't really an issue, just a visual thing.
