Dear Readers, Please Forgive

   Please forgive Typepad.  They’ve apparently mixed up their feeds, and have been pushing celebrity gossip through mine and many other Typepad users.  Yet another reason why I contemplate leaving.

   I’m sure they didn’t mean harm, and that they’ll apologize for, or at least acknowledge, their mistake soon.

  Right, Typepad?

Update: This was posted in the help ticket area of Typepad.  I found it when I went there to complain about not seeing a notification anywhere else.  I guess I don’t know why they didn’t post this somewhere a little more public. 

On March 6, 2008 we experienced a brief problem with our feed service
on TypePad. Some TypePad users were affected, where another blog’s
entries appeared to be coming from their feed. We’ve corrected the
problem and feeds are now rendering correctly, but your readers may
still see these incorrect entries in RSS reading applications (like
Google Reader). We’re very sorry for the confusion this issue may have
caused you and your readers — and we’re working hard to make sure it
doesn’t happen again.

  1. gosh, thanks for posting this, I have been completely bewildered, and Typepad didn’t notify me. I thought it was Feedburner or Feedblitz. I had plenty of angry or confused subscribers, who got a lot of garbage gossip feeds.

  2. I am very happy to read the following. This is the type of manual that needs to be given and not the random misinformation that’s at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc.
