A reason to not use a commercial service

As you probably recall, I recently moved this blog from Typepad to WordPress. It was an easy process, and one that was well worth it. But, of course, spammers of all stripes (email spammers, comment spammers, weblog spammers) are like mold growing on a piece of bread that's been out for a few days. In order to avoid having to cough up $150 for another year, and to move to an entirely free and open source platform that I control, I cancelled my typepad account.
