[wp-hackers] Action called when a comment is marked as spam?

I'm looking at collecting IP information on my servers for IP addresses 
that send comment spam.

Looking in the hooks database at http://adambrown.info/p/wp_hooks and 
with some Googling, it looks like the comment_post action is the best 
place to hook. I'd then need to check the comment status (see if it's 
spam), and that's about it. If I understand rightly, all plugins (like 
Akismet) that can mark a comment as spam, will have done their work by 
this point.

Does that sound right?

Many thanks,
