So I can't download plug-ins if my blog is hosted by wordpress.com?
Since you've only been here for three days and your username on this forum isn't clickable, do you host your own site? Because if you host your own site, then you should ask at the WordPress.org forum:

Poster is here at wp.com. We don't have access to adding in our own plugins here as we don't have ftp access as it's a security risk.
does anyone know is this will be available any time soon??
