Well, maybe not all over.
But HaloScan has been having issues for a while. And now TypePad is screwing up.
TypePad is rejecting many TrackBacks for what seems to me to be no good reason. For folks using the Wizbang form, they are giving a response like:
Server IP 999.999.999.999 is too far away
from source URL IP 333.333.333.333
Of course, the numbers actually the IP address of your site and of Wizbang and not those silly, impossible numbers I used.
Anyway, I think the brain trust at TypePad decided to implement an anti-spamming routine that checks and compares IP addresses.
Only, they didn't think about people using third party forms.
Or they did, but have a problem with the process and need to fix the bug.
Whatever, they got a problem. And it affects this little blog.
And I don't like that.
So, this morning, I submitted a trouble ticket.
They actually have responded. Well, they haven't replied, but they did change the status of the ticket:
Support Ticket Details:
Subject: Unable to send TrackBack with 3rd party form
Status: We're Working On It
So, let's give them the chance to fix it.
If they get it fixed soon, maybe we can turn our attention to HaloScan.
