To delete a forum topic or reply awaiting approval...

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

  2. In the service document, 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 topic or reply 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 topic or reply that you noted in the previous step.
