I would leave Typepad, I swear, if this happened. I hate LJ. Like the people on it, hate LJ with a passion. I don’t care for blogger either so I would have to go with greymatter or something on a server somewhere, there is also a company that sets it up for you, might have to do that.
Anything, ANYTHING but see Typepad weighed down with LJ technical incompetency (try navigating it today, for example) and customer service/abuse team stupidity.
Thank GOD I didn’t buy a year of Typepad, because I would demand a refund if there was truth to this. Especially if they EVER let any of the LJ staff touch a damn thing with Typepad.
Please let this be just a rumour. PLEASE.
