I believe the blackhole filter is applied to all mail (mainly email from China 
and known spam content).  If you run SA locally on all of your email, it'll 
usually trigger the for-moderation-posts as spam if it is spam.  =)  But, this 
is something that each moderator would need to be aware of and do 
independently.  There's always the possibility that'll it screw up, so caveat 
emptor.  -- justin
