A New Partnership to Take the Fight Against Spam Even Further

As you probably know, spam is one of the worst things about being online.  It's pervasive.  It's annoying.  We all hate it.

No doubt you've noticed that you no longer receive nearly as much comment spam on your Typepad blog.  This comes from changes we've made on our end, tools that we've given you so that you can also participate in the fight, and more.

In our next step to elimintating even more comment spam, we're excited to announce that we're partnering with Akismet - one of the best in the spam fighting business - to help safeguard you and your blog.

The best part is that this is all taking place on Typepad's backend over the upcoming weeks, so there's nothing you need to do to take advantage of Akismet's spam protection.  Just sit back and enjoy commenting with your readers.

In the off chance that you do see something funny, simply open a help ticket and one of our experienced support staff will be happy to assist you.

Hi. It's great not to get spam..thank you for this. One question..I have a couple of regular commenters that often go to Spam...I never have figured out why..they are legitimate bloggers. Is there any way I can ensure they won't go to spam? And if they do will there still be a spam folder so I can move them to publish comments like I do now? Thanks

Thank you! I am grateful that you stopped partnering with that "other company" whose expertise was not in comment spam and partnered with the best! Akismet = relief! :-D


Hi Sallie,

We're hoping that moving you to Akismet should alleviate this issue.

Please keep an eye on your comments over the next week and open a ticket if you don't see any improvement.
