 "marks as spam" has more of a ring of truth, though the comments are
 hidden in your db unless you have a "spam" aware plugin -- which are now

 [http://codex.wordpress.org/Combating_Comment_Spam These "nuked" comments
 will not appear...] on your blog, but they will remain in your database
 marked as [spam]. Comments that are marked as [spam] are held in your
 database to educate "intelligent" anti-spam plugins, such as Akismet
 (http://akismet.com/). Plugins like Spam Nuker
 (http://www.chrisjdavis.org/2005/03/03/mass-delete-15/) can safely recover
 or permanently delete any comments marked as [spam] .
