Default Filled in small rust spot about the size of a 1 cm dot with good touch up paint, will rust...

...still spread? There was a very tiny little spot of rust the shape of a dot and maybe just half a centimeter in dimater on the front part of the hood on my 99 civic. It look liked it was just a small chip that went through the paint and just now started to rust. I used some touch up paint to fill it in and little bit around it (the car is black). Will the spot still get bigger and the rust spot still spread, or by using the touch up paint to fill it in did i now prevent it from spreading?will the paint act as a protective coat over the rust now from rain and the outside elements?

the rust will spread but this takes years I'm pretty sure you will sell it by then.. but if it was a classic car and you didn't treat the spot properly then your gonna ruin the car.

You should have cleaned the rust out, used some primer to prepare the surface and then used the touch-up paint. Painting directly over the rust will not keep it from rusting.

yes.. unless you totally replace the sheet metal the rust will spread. bondo is just a temporary solution and will break off over time while the rust spreads.. basically you're best bet is to replace the actual sheet metal and sand down the weld points for a smooth surface and then prime and paint it.
