Failing attempts to activate WordPress.com Stats yields this messagae:
"WordPress.com Stats needs attention: please enter an API key or disable the plugin.
The API key "xxxxxxxx23d3" belongs to the WordPress.com account of "clientaccount". If this is not your account, please re-enter your API key."
"xxxxxxxx23d3" works fine for Akismet. Disabled Akismet w/ no luck. Created new wp.com account w/ new API and Akiment disabled and no luck.
Clean reinstall and still no luck.
