UPDATE: 7/3/05: So much for good handling of TrackBack spam - some jerk has been bombarding me with hundreds of really offensive trackback spams across all of my TypePad blogs and I've had to manually delete them all (and keep doing it every 10 minutes). What happened TypePad guys???

Just wanted to note how impressed I've been with how TypePad has been handling Comment and TrackBack spam.  I've got my blog set to email me whenever there is a new comment or trackback, and every time I get a notification of a new comment/trackback which is clearly spam, by the time I've logged into TypePad, the spam has already been automatically removed from my blog.  Very nice.

TypePad now sucks at handling spam (and has for months). I'm shocked that they haven't improved their system for blocking spam yet!
