I've always loved Typepad. I've never wanted to leave it, since I found it, and I don't plan to leave it now, but it's annoyances have gotten to me lately.
I don't even mean the RSS Feed glitch that is making the posts larger than life on most portals. That's annoying, but no one seems to fix it and in the end, well, I guess it makes the feed owner shut off Typepad blogs or people just put up with it. It's annoying that World of SL has a feed the displays typepad not with its "above the fold" first part, which would make a blog cut short and smaller to deal with, but dips down further into the "below the fold" part. I am not even going to bother to try to fight that because it's not doable, I guess, but just...annoying.
But I've developed a set of 3 pet peeves about Typepad that I feel I really need to publish and not just file as a "feedback" that will likely be ignored, or get a polite answer (they are very good with CS and politeness) but go nowhere. In part, I want to publish this so that others using Typepad can respond and explain whether anything *can* be done about these annoyances.
My third annoyance isn't common to Typepad alone -- I think most blog software is set up this way with this friggin annoying domain-name stuff. I guess there'd have to be access to some cloud server somewhere that would pull up an interface with all your blogs and whatnot everywhere to enable you to manage them. And no, OpenID isn't that, because that's cumbersome and doesn't work (paging Gwyn L, who has a blog where it never works for example).
