    Okay, so, I don't know how this bacame a problem, but I used to use an older version of wordpress under a 3 character username. Now that I've updated, I can log into my blog, but I can't login to wordpress' website. As a result can't get an API key for Akismet to fix all this horrendous spam I'm getting. Is there something I can do?

    Wait...heeey...that didn't resolve my problem after all. How do get an API key? Can you only get it if you have a wordpress.com blog? I host my own blog, so I'm abit confused.

    EDIT: You don't need a blog there (any more...), but you do need to register at WordPress.COM.

    Actually, you know, that was really rude of me for talking before I finished reading what you gave me, I think I've answered my own question.
