Spam Prevention
In order to reduce the amount of spam on your blog the administrator has provided the option to provide an Akismet key.
Wordpress API Key:
It seems to want me to type in an API Key.

1. How do I get this key?

2. What does API even stand for? Yes, I'm old and clueless and I don't have a small child handy to explain computers to me.

Oh, it says it's an option -- so perhaps I don't need this at all. I'll go see.

It's for comment spam on blog posts. You don't need it because only members can post comments on blog posts.
