I have given Sixapart a chance. I understand it isn't easy to scale up a complicated service for millions of users, but the slowness of the application, and the near daily disabling of statistics is getting to be too much.
I mean, I do pay for this service; I think it only right that I expect a certain level of service. Sadly, I am not getting that level of service from Typepad any more, and I think I am going to start transitioning to a different platform if I don't see dramatic improvements soon.
Oh, and how about some new features while you're at it (like RSS feeds for categories)? I can't remember the last notable feature that Typepad introduced.
