ה' from אלה

I usually fix a ה which has a left regel which extends too far across to to the right. Many poskim hold that anything past the half way mark (such as the above picture) is not lechatchillah. I once discussed this with Rav Freidlander who said its kedai to fix, so I do.  Other poskim like Rav Stern don't worry too much about this issue. I noticed R' Moshe Weiner is exceptionally machmir when bringing down this case in his sefer. In a picture not dissimilar to the one above, he seems to say it is a major problem. I was wondering how other members of this forum deal with this commonissue...
