    I am on wordpress.org i have installed askimet plugin version 2.5.9. I have activated on my wordpress.org blog which is successful-women-blog.com and I am trying to edit the settings (or at least VIEW them) i go to askimet and I enter the user name I use to login to wordpress admin which IS admin and I type in my wordpress password I get error that "admin is NOT a username for word press.COM ?!"

    I try putting in my email address associated with my wordpress.org account (jrenee6262000@gmail.com) to retrieve my login information.

    Some how my wordpress.com account for cineciti blog, associated email nrenee6262000@gmail.com and username nubian626, is getting mixed in with my account info for my wordpress.org account
    which is successful-women-blog associated email jrenee6262000@gmail.com

    You have three, unrelated logins -

    WordPress.ORG (this site)
    WordPress.COM
    Your WP site.

    If you have the same email or user names for more than one of those, your browser may be getting the login(s) confused - try clearing your browser cache.

    Also, you should not ever use "admin" for a user name for your self-hosted site - that's a major security risk.
