It's quite easy to have only a particular address (or a few) moderated.

Go to the "Privacy options" section of the administrative interface. Find
the section titled "Addresses whose postings are always held for approval."
enter the address there (in all lower case, I believe). Postings from the
cretin ... er ... user will then always cause you to be asked for approval.
The user *WILL* be notified of this when he tries to post. I had to do this
to someone and he got a clue rather fast.
