These are the posts which admin can access from the Post located at your WordPress dashboard. Also, the comments on your posts are being stored in the post_meta in your database.

Users can also report fraud/objectionable or offensive posts/comments from the wall by clicking the red exclamation button in the post/comment box of a user. These reported posts/comments can be moderated by the admin through the Community Board -> Report tab.
