Default Validating Multiple Similar TextAreas

hozdaman thanks for posting your code above as it will help me figure out a better way to validate some of my TextAreas. I have a 16 question multiple choice online quiz which is validated for the answers, however there are 16 associated comment (TextArea) sections. I want to limit these TextAreas in case somebody enters with a cut and paste "...all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy..." thousands of times. If it CAN be done it WILL be done!

So, is there a better way than writing the code 16 below times (different field names of course)? All work and no play does make Jack a dull boy!
if(Request["Q1Comments"].Length > 200){
            ModelState.AddError("Q1Comments","Your comment cannot exceed 200 characters");
