    You certainly don’t have to use the intended poster’s real email or give them the password to the account. 🙂

    That’s true, but when I tried that, the invitation made me create a WP account, and not one on my blog. Is there a way that I don’t have to create “fake” WP accounts? Or maybe I did something wrong?

    I don’t understand. What do you mean by “a WP account” vs. “one on my blog”?

    The invitation I get it points to the WP.com website, so that I have to create an account there. I would like to create a local account, just on my blog’s database. For example, once I tried to create the account I got a warning that that user already exists, though I am sure I have no user with that username on my blog’s DB.

    Is there a way to create only a local account, without having to create a WP.com profile?

    Do you have Jetpack installed and, if so, have you enabled the single sign on option?

    That was it! It worked!

    I disabled that option, I created the user, and then I enabled that option again.

    Thank you!
