CRUD refers to the ability to Create, Read, Update and Delete comments and posts. Also referred to specifically as "comment CRUD" or possibly "webmention CRUD".

There are also notions of POSSE CRUD and reply-context CRUD


If you post a reply to another post, and possibly later update it or delete it, you should implement CRUD by sending (another) webmention to the post you've replied to so it can create, make available for reading, update, and possibly delete your comment inline on the original post.
