It appears that Typepad is having some issues regarding the comments area. I have heard that people have tried to leave comments but were unable to as Typepad is thinking some comments are spam when in reality they are just fine. I do have a word list of unacceptable terms--but unless you are mentioning something about porn--you should be just fine. Typepad has suggested just leaving a message that says "test" to see if you are able to do so. If not, your IP address may partially be on a ban list. If you are having problems could you please email me and I will let Typepad know (I hate to think I am missing comments!). Thanks.
