Re: Akismet key id
RonJRoy, bbPress and WordPress are not really related, and a wordpress.com login is necessary just for the Akismet key. The login for bbPress does not work at wordpress.com.
One thing I always thought was weird though is that the wordpress.com login works for trac.bbpress.org.
Glad you got it sorted. Since this is beta software, there are going to be some questions, and there are always people around to help.
