Yes you do.
Firstly disable the captcha plugin in SK2 so that people can't recover
Then install this plugin for SK2
That will make SK2 take into account the following WP options:
"An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches
below)" (under Options ... Discussion)
"Comment author must have a previously approved comment" ( also under
Options ... Discussion)
By default SK2 overrides all the builtin comment moderation controls
with it's own ones.
