> What API key bug?
Here's the first message I sent, right after it was announced:
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.

I believe at least one other person is having this problem too.
And it it's NOT a bug, then I must be doing something wrong, because it's
not catching any spam. I've been getting hammered all morning. I finally had
to turn on moderation for all comments.

What API key bug? You need to actually enter the API key before it will
work. Once you do enter the API key, then it will stop spam. You still can't
Delete All, but that's another bug entirely.

Not for me. It hasn't stopped a single spam so far. Is this because of the 
API key bug?
