Spam Chronicles — Episode 2: TypePad Responds


Above, this morning's response to my inquiry of yesterday.

Props to TypePad for what as best I can tell (but consider the source — me) is a real response from a real person as opposed to a botmail.

And they got back to me within 24 hours, again impressive.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that after doing what Michel said — namely, going to the link he suggested (below)


and then following its instructions, I still can't figure out how to have comments "flagged as possible spam and held for your approval."

But, on the brighter side, I did go through my list of banned URLs and words and found a few common ones like "spam" and "mother" and suchlike that I'd banned years ago when they kept coming up in spam.

So we'll see if things improve.

Send those comments in — let's test this puppy.

Could it be that this spam problem is fixed, like my male impotence? Hair loss, he said? Business opportunities? Money on the interweb?
