Anti-Splog API Question

Hi,

I have a question about usage of the anti-splog API:

I might not be able to maintain continuous membership here (although it will be close), so I'm wondering if there is any way to have continuous access to the anti-splog API without re-configuring everything if I let my membership lapse and then re-join.

For example, I am wondering if the API checks for valid membership upon each usage, or is there perhaps a grace period of some kind? No, I don't expect free use of the API during lapses, but I'm wondering whether the settings will stay in place or need to be reconfigured.

Another concern is that I might join under a different company (as I'm associated with more than one, and purchasing situations may dictate the enrolled user details, etc.). So I don't know how I'd maintain an API key across multiple memberships.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
