After a potentially inappropriate comment has been made, it is kept at the "Held for Review". Mostly comments with link spam and inappropriate remarks are held for review. You can add more words in the "blocked words" to block more comments.

These comments are not posted until you approve of them. You will have the final decision whether to approve, hide, or report these comments to youtube.

Held for Review

The comments that the system will keep from being posted will not always be spam. Sometimes even harmful comments will be posted and pass this moderation update. But after your decision, the system will keep your feedback as an approval criteria.

Its like Artificial intelligence (AI) for comments that takes feedback from user for potentially inappropriate comments and reviews the next comments using the feedback as a reference.

This way youtube can reduce spam with the help of its users. However, comments that were posted before this update will not be affected by the "Held for Review" feature. It only applies to new comments.
