An anonymous blogger going by the name of TypeRefugee has set up a blog at Blogger asking for details of TypePad users who would be interested in joining them in a class action law suite against SixApart over its buggy TypePad blogging service.
From the TypePad Class Action Law Suite Blog:
As its long-suffering users know, TypePad has provided terrible service over the last several months. Its “fix” for the problems causing “degraded” service was put in place last week. Today, after a day of “degraded” service, the entire TypePad application is down.
TypePad is a paid service. It has repeatedly violated its contract with its subscribers, many of whom use TypePad as a part of their businesses, as encouraged by TypePad and SixApart.
The time has come to deal with this issue. I propose a Class Action lawsuit against SixApart.
Any TypePad blogger interested should leave his/her contact and blog information in the comments section below, along with a brief description of the problems experienced with TypePad. (Or, if you prefer, email that information to typepadrefugee — at — yahoo.com.)
If enough people register, I’ll contact legal experts and procede with the preparation for the lawsuit.
