I noticed recently that TypePad Connect had opened up. I had been looking for a better way to handle my comments, though I don't get many up to this point. My level of membership on TypePad doesn't give me the ability to do a lot of template customization, or if it does I don't have the time right now to hack away at it. TypePad Connect allows the capability to reply to comments, to have profiles of my readers if they choose, and it also allows me to get rid of that darn CAPTCHA, which I hate on other blogs and feel mildly hypocritical for having on my own. TypePad Connect has a comment spam filter. I've noticed that since I started using TypePad Connect, I am getting spam comments, but they've all been properly filtered. I don't know why, but my Comments on the movie Fireproof seems to be attracting all of the spam.
