TypePad Hacks reports that TypePad have updated their comment spam protection to allow bloggers to ban specific words and URLS. This is an update of the previous version of this feature which had problems because if you entered words that were part of other words it was a little over zealous and blocked both (ie ‘Banning the word “the” would also ban “theater,” “theremin,” and so on’).
