Hi Steven,

You might be vulnerable, anyways.  If you include any of the comment 
text in your automated e-mail, what's to keep spam-bots from supplying 
the e-mail address of their desired victim?  Then your moderation notice 
email becomes spam itself.

If you return the comment moderation information in the form submit 
result page, there's no way a spam-bot can send anything anywhere else.
