1 Mar, 2006

typekey_2.gifDue to recent amount of comment spamming. We've decided to implement authentication for comments/talkback. This simply means visitors will need to identify themselves (can still remain anonymity) if they wish to post a comment/talkback.

After some evaluation, we decide to use Six Apart's free authentication server, TypeKey. TypeKey is a free, open system providing users a central identity for posting comments on weblogs and logging into other websites. Unlike WordPress' registration requirement, TypeKey works on thousands of websites: from weblogs to Six Apartís websites to services made by third parties. If you have a TypePad account, your login can work anywhere that TypeKey is accepted.

Best of all, you can still remain anonymity and use use TypeKey for free.


TypeKey is a free authentication service that lets you sign-in to your favourite websites.
With a TypeKey account, you can

  • verify your identity online and "own your words"
  • let your friends will know it's you
  • use one single account on thousands of sites across the web

Best of all, t's free, quick and easy, and you can still remain anonymous. You just need to supply a valid email address to TypeKey (not to us or other websites).

If you have a TypeKey account, you can Sign

SillyDog701's MozInfo701 and MacCentre701 may follow this authentication requirement.

TypeKey helps. But it can reduce commentors. Some people don't want to go through registration and signing in.

Yes typekey can be helpful. but is misleading as anyone can setup account with any name.

No website is spam free, as anyone can create fake email, register with and can comment on any blog.. is that make sense!

TypeKey: Due to recent comment spams we encountered, we now require some basic form of authentication before posting your comments. If you have a TypeKey identity, please sign in to use it here.(Don't have a TypeKey account? get one now. It's free)

We apologise for inconvenience.
(Why we need to enable authentication.)

TypeKey is an open and free authentication system, it can be used for a number of sites and TypePad blogs/journals.
