Question:
If you have a full screen of masked data sets and have the "Long message in pop-up"  ISPF setting activated, the help message will completely cover 3 entries near the bottom. How can I manage this?
 
Answer:
There is no option to prevent the long message from being displayed when the PLIST is displayed. 
There are multiple methods of moving the entries out from under the message or to dismiss the long message. 

1) Type a number in the command field (like 5), then hit the scroll key to display hidden entries. 
2) Type a slash ('/') in a line command field and hit enter to scroll the display. 
3) Hitting the swap key dismisses the long message (you need not have a split screen active).
