how to retrieve akismet API key --aka-- wordpress.com api key

After re-installing a new wordpress  blog, we only found out that the akismet plugin key id has lost. But without the akismet plugin key, akismet simply won't allow to activate. We could apply a new account from wordpress.com but that would render our presiously applied wordpress.com account email address useless. More over, one might only have 1 email address to spend. How do we recover it? Scroll down :

sign in to your WordPress.com account using the previous username and  password. The wordpress akismet plugin key will be listed on top of the "Profile" page.

Voilla !!!
