Add a comment moderator to your channel

You can assign moderators to your channel who can flag comments on your videos for removal. Multiple comment moderators are allowed on a channel and any user with a YouTube channel can be a moderator.  

When the moderator removes a comment from your channel, watch page, or live chat, you'll see it in your Held for Review queue as "Flagged by moderator" until you approve or remove it.
