When you post a video to YouTube, it is a good idea to turn ON comment moderation. As of this writing in February 2012, it is not possible to make “comment moderation ON” a default setting in YouTube. Follow these three steps after uploading a video to turn on comment moderation.

First, click EDIT info on the video you want to change.

Edit YouTube video Info

Second, click SETTINGS.

Edit YouTube Video Settings

Third, under COMMENTS choose ALLOW ALL COMMENTS WITH APPROVAL ONLY, then click SAVE CHANGES.

Allow YouTube Comments with Approval Only

Now you’ll need to approve comments on that video before they will show up publicly for others to view.
