i just installed 2.0 and tried to activate the akismet plugin. the plugin tells me i need to verify my api key, but i cann't find the api key to plug in.
the faq, other forum posts, etc. all tell me that i need to log in (or register) to wordpress.com. but i don't need to register with wordpress.com; i use word press on my own domain. the only username and password i have is my administrator's username and password.
so, my question is:
how do non-wordpress.com users find their api? do i have to register with wordpress.com (and start up an unecessary blog) in order to get an api? wouldn't that apply to my wordpress.com blog rather than my blog on my domain?
