The database field where the rules as well as the static message are stored is limited to 255 characters (config_value column in the phpbb_config table). However, there's an easy fix for you: put your content into the language file: ... at.php#L91

In the long term, both values should be moved to the phpbb_config_text table where they can be more than 16 million characters long. I've opened an issue that you can follow here:
