No.

Standard net etiquette is that email should be wrapped around 72
characters to give space for reply indentation to remain readable
on an 80 column screen. Most of my email replies are written on an
80 column screen.

Wrapping at 80+ characters is against proper net etiquette.

Same applies to GIT commits: wrap at around 72 characters to allow
them to be readable on an 80 column display. Linus will hate you
if you don't.
