Comment Problems: Typepad Goes Anti-Spam Crazy

Wednesday, December 19, 2007 | 09:55 AM

Everything_typepad_2 I suspected something was awry when I could not post a comment to my own blog -- I was blocked as a spammer.

To those of you who have been unable to post comments, its most likely not you, but the newly aggressive anti-spam filters. (See this recent "Everything TypePad" blog post)

To check if it is your IP address, try posting "ABC." If that works, than its most likely something in the content. Look for the usual spam words -- "mortgage-refinance-viagra-huge tool" and edit them out. If you still cannot get a post up, email it to me with your name and which post its for, and I will edit it in.

If ABC won't post, try opening a different browser. I could not post "ABC" in Firefox, but it worked  fine in Safari and IE.


Hey SixApart: Here is my feature request: I want to identify specific IP and email addresses as "Preferred Commentors." These folks would not get flagged as spammers, and should not even have to deal with the captchas.

Thank you in advance. (If you could have it done yesterday, that would be good).
