    i'm in China and wordpress dot com has been banned in my country since a couple of months ago for some bullshit unknown reasons and i no longer have access to my acount at wordpress.com.i cannot use proxies either because of my network connection. now i've installed a wordpress on my own machine for test purposes.but i don't remember my wordpress.com api key and cannot use the akismet plugin.does anyone know how to get it? who shall I report this problem to? i tried to explore wordpress.org and find contact information with wordpress.com but failed.thanks for help.

    Unfortunately the only way to get an akismet API key is to log in to your wordpress.com account.
    Maybe you know somebody that you trust in another country - so you could ask that person to get the key for you.

    i got it! i was inspired by the topic "missing API key" where moshu suggested that one could find his api key in his registeration email.then i checked my email and i found it! thank you moshu, you are super.

    but more unfortunately, my akismet plugin still said that my api key seem invalid after i update it from my registeraion email.i can visit akismet.com normally. is being disconnected with wordpress.com still the reason for this?
