Now that was weird
TrackBacks from here to TypePad sites have been wonky of late, so for the previous post, I decided to bypass MT's TB routine and use Wizbang's instead.
This is the response I got:
Okay, I sent that from my desk, and my Web host is in southern California but why should that matter to TypePad? Linkers to Basil's Blog (see comments) seem to be experiencing the same phenomenon. For now, I'm guessing it's a spam preventative gone horribly wrong.

Oh, it's not just to my site. It's to all TypePad sites. They have identified this as a bug:
Support Ticket: 084866
Support Ticket Details:
Subject: Unable to send TrackBack with 3rd party form
Status: We're Working On It
They've been "working on it" for over a week. That's why I've been away. I'm packing up the site for moving it to another host. Or hosting it myself.
Just to clarify, it's not a setting I have any control over. It's been implemented by TypePad without my input.
No, I'm not happy about it.
