Akismet purposefully made their own signup page broken.
When I try to sign up for an API key, using Personal blog with the yearly contribution set to 0, when I click on the "Continue" button, I'm redirected to this blank page: https://akismet.com/signup/?step=payment which no matter how many times I try to refresh it or start the process all over again, it won't work!
However, if I add some dollars to the yearly contribution, when I click on the "Continue" button, it works! YEAH!!!!!!! How convenient!!!!!!
The free page doesn't work, the paid page works!!! This is a pathetic and thuggish attempt to force us to pay!
What's worse is that WordPress bundles this thug plugin in all their updates/download kits, by default!
If I was wordpress, I would have removed this plugin, long time ago!
SHAME ON YOU AKISMET! SHAME ON YOU WORDPRESS!!!
