[spam-stopper] The big update :)

Cool! I just installed it and it seems to be working okay. 

However, I tried to mark one spam as "not spam" and received an error about
my api key: 

Your key appears invalid. Double-check it. 

...which I did and it seemed to accept the key fine. Nevertheless, I got
this error every time and the spam status was never changed. 

Also, I just tried deleting all 579 spams in the queue and, though it didn't
display an error, it redirected me to the "enter API key" form and didn't
actually delete the spams.

My wordpress.com username is drumdance, if that's any help in debugging.

> Some major updates:
> * Now called Automattic Kismet, or Akismet for short
> * New servers blah blah
> * Requires WP.com API key
> * Allows you to review caught spam, and submit false positives
> * Deletes spam after 15 days (should clean out those DBs!)
> * Is clearer that it submits it to a web service (Podz)
> * It may need a day or so to get back to its former effectiveness (or 
> lack thereof)
> * Shows some stats on your dashboard
> Thanks to everyone for your feedback, and Michael for the code. :)
