[wp-hackers] Akismet stats

Yes, the comments table in her database is completely empty.

I acquired the Akismet API key for her back in February 2009, and the 
Akismet stats on her self-hosted WP site start with February 2009.

She only has the one site so hasn't reused this API key.

The historical stats show 1 spam detected in March, and 1,296 legitimate 
comments in February, 226 in March and 135 in April (1,657 total) . At 
the same time, the top of the page shows "4 spams caught, 1,792 
legitimate comments, and an overall accuracy rate of 100.000%", which 
doesn't match the totals in the historical stats.

Very puzzling....
