New Typepad Anti-spam Features Come Online

    May 3, 2006

My amigo del fuego John T. Unger has some good news for Typepad users.

Apparently, TypePad has released a new feature about an hour ago that now allows users to ban specific words, including URLs, to defeat spam comments and trackbacks.

This is good news. I (and I would assume many other Typepad customers) have been fighting daily battles against the overlords of spam, especially over the last two weeks or so. Another tool in the arsenal is great to have.
