I believe 25 feet is the max and you subtract 5 feet for every 90 degree elbow.

Why in the world did they take it up to the ceiling and then back down, that adds almost 15 feet to it.  ???

Can you site a source for your 'belief'? This isn't theology we're talking here.

Here you go mister snippy.  ;)

www.dryerbox.com/dryer_venting_guide.htm

Length of concealed rigid metal ducting shall not exceed 35 feet (25' for IRC).  Deduct 5 feet from the allowable length for every 90 degree elbow and two and a half feet for every 45 degree fitting (the Dryer-Ell is an exception under 2006 IRC Section M1502.6, 2009 IMC Section 504.6.4 and 2009 IRC Section M1502.4).  These lengths may vary per local codes and dryer manufacturers recommendations.
