Moderation is the process of holding comments for review by a human, and sometimes a source of frustration when a comment is written on another site that the commenter has no control over.
Under the current webmention specification there is no indication for when a comment is held for modification.
In many systems, however, there is a response for human commenters that is visible, indicating that a comment has been accepted and is awaiting moderation by a human.

An example of an unwanted comment is on the bottom of this post has been brought in via bridgy and webmention.herokuapp.com - it's not clear which of those services should be used to mark it as not for display. Just deleting it on one or other of them is likely not enough, as it could be brought back by sending the webmention again.
