My API key for running Akismet on my blog is not working. I have this error message in my Akismet Configuration page: "Your key appears invalid. Double-check it." I went to my wordpress.com dashboard and checked my API key there and pasted it in... but it was the same key. When I click "Update API Key" nothing changes. It seems like this has started when I activated the new stats functionality with my API key... it could have just been a coincidence.
Any thoughts? Help? It REALLY sucks having to moderate all the spam comments I am getting!
