The main criticism I've heard about MT is that is essentially an application program written by web developers, ergo it's been badly designed and thus hard to maintain. If this is true then MT will need some major restructuring to moved to a better engineered application.
But this will take time, and the first restructured version will be prolly be crap.

OTOH MT blogs don't look like a programmer designed them, which is generally a good thing.

"OTOH MT blogs don't look like a programmer designed them, which is generally a good thing."

Yup, they look great, but are a b*tch to manage. Can you say "high maintenance?"


I don't get this move either. Of course, I still don't understand why Google bought blogger, so I'm a little behind the curve.

As for MT, I can't stand the fact that you have to rebuild it all the time and that it uses cgi, but they did make some nice, clean templates. This, by the way, is a great screed:

"Wow, I didn't know you were a business analyst with deep knowledge of the two companies."

What a daft statement. Guess what, hombre? Investment banking analyst was once my job description. And guess what field I was covering? Yes, that's right ...

"I can actually see quite a few, but then, I had to think about it for more than five seconds..."

Then why don't you TELL us what these are? Anyone can engage in empty bullshitting: don't tell us that you know, SHOW it.

"Wow, THAT'S a lot of speculation and fluffery."

Yeah, it's pure speculation that I'm putting up with crap controls and an unresponsive customer service operation for something I'm shelling out my own cash for ...

"Uhh, you DON'T. Turn on your dynamic templates..."

Shows how little you actually know, doesn't it? TypePad DOESN'T have dynamic templates, genius!

In future, I'd suggest you keep your mouth closed and think a little before criticizing those who know what they're talking about a lot better than you do.

[You know what? Your mother should have taught you some manners. I've had enough of your rubbish, and it's precisely the absence of effective tools to control obnoxious, cowardly little morons like you that makes me loathe the TypePad service so much - A.L.]
