To delete a comment awaiting approval...

  1. Retrieve the moderation service document. See Retrieve the Files moderation service document for more details.

  2. In the service document, locate the workspace with the <category term="comments-moderation" .../> child element, and then find the collection with the <atom:category term="approval-content" .../> child element, and make a note of the web address in its href attribute.

  3. Send a GET request to the web address you copied from the previous step. In the returned feed, find the comment that you want to delete, and make a note of the web address for it, which is specified in the href attribute of its rel=edit link.

  4. Send a DELETE request to the web address of the edit link of the comment that you noted in the previous step.
