    I use Spam Karma 2, and it’s great. I suggest you give it a shot if you continue to have problems.

    Yes. “Click on the My Account link in the top right corner of the window, and note the API key in the first paragraph under the heading.”

    This doesn’t exist.

    When I click on MY ACCOUNT, the “Your Profile and Personal Options” page comes up, but no API#

    There must be something I’m missing.

    Well, if Spam Karma requires the API key, then my question remains…

    I just installed SK; looks cool so far.
    Still no clue about the API thinger issue, but I may have a cleaner inbox now.

    When are spammers going to realize that if they actually read a posting, comment on-topic and I approve it, they can return with the onslaught?

    laters.

    You have to register a blog at WordPress.com – and in *that* blog it’s got the API. Seems a bit daft to me, as they’ve got a lot of blogs there I’d guess that have nothing but a URL … which is a pain for anyone who *wants* one there & can’t get the URL that they want.

    Ditto for me — I do NOT have:

    “To find your key go to your dashboard and then click on “Profile” (or “My Account”) and you should see a sentence that says “Your WordPress.com API key is:” followed by a string of 12 letters and numbers.”

    as the FAQ page: http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/10/19/api-key/ suggests…

    What gives?

    stenphen: If you have nothing there then either your wordpress.com blog is missing it or you do not have a blog at wordpress.com

    http://wordpress.com
    Do you have a blog there?

    you’re presently at wordpress.ORG. you need to go to wordpress.COM for the key.

    ORG is diffirent from COM.

    Gotcha… pardon the ignorance, podz and charle97, but is an API key allowed at .com for a .org blog user? I see no indication that you can get a key without first become a .com member too, nor do logins work (.org) on the .com site… thanks for your input/feedback.

    Go to wordpress.COM
    Register for a blog at wordpress.COM
    Use THAT id to log into your wordpress.COM blog
    — (no, you need not use it.)

    Note: Now you have a wordpress.com blog. No, you need not ever use. No, you’re not defrauding anyone. Yes, this is how you get API keys.

    Copy and Paste your key over to your own .org blog
    Vow to not overcomplicate in the future. 😉

    Can do, HandySolo.

    New users need a tad more spelling out sometimes…

    Thanks.
