I left the default Post #1 "Hello World" as private. Then today I got a comment to this but it was a spam. Full of links with gaming urls. etc...
1. How does WordPress know to make these awaiting moderation? I set it so that you have to enter email and name to comment.
2. What happens when you select SPAM in the moderation page. I looks like it flags it. Does WordPress do any other back end safe guards to block future spams by this individual?
