I have eliminated the TypePad commenting system and gone back to free comments without vetting or other hassles. TypePad was already rejecting some friends of the house. Then it started rejecting me by requiring different passwords on different days. I finally got fed up with it.
I only started using it to eliminate all the comment spam I was receiving. We’ll see if the spam becomes a problem again. I expect some will come back. Hope not too much. If I have to go back to vetting, however, it sure won’t be with TypePad. It is a worthless piece of junk.
