This morning was the first time I think that my wordpress.com blog was 
hit with the same spams Andy received. 5 of them went into the 
moderation queue though, but I marked them as spam and they went into 
the spam tab - is that enough to send them to Akismet?

I added his IP to the blacklist and the last 2 were marked as Spam. I 
thought that blacklisting stopped the spam dead, without it going into 
moderation? Marking it as spam is good enough for me however :)
