I think  there may be a language misunderstanding here, involving the two words "modified"
and "moderated". I  think the word mofifiied was used in error for moderated. I am not involved
with the API forum but my knowledge of the en-Forum is this (and I would not expect the API
forum to be much different): 

the initial posts are "moderated", that is, inspected to be sure that they are not "spam",
carrying advertising, or trivial posts consisting of pointless "noise".  Unfortunately this
has become necessary for initial posters to many newsgroups, mailing lists and forums, to
help reduce the nuisance ostings and try to keep the list relevant to its purpose.  A user's
posts are in general not modified; a group moderator might correct a spelling error (typos
can happen to the best of us!) or change a mistranslated term to the correct one, but only
to clarify the sense, in the intention to be helpful.

Once a user has had a posting approved his postings are displayed immediately.  This process
is sufficient to reduce the level of spam and noise postings significantly.

I hope that explanation sets your mind at rest, Yessica.
