Is there a way to restrict certain keywords when adding an RTC comment in a work item OR is there a way to allow a comment to be approved before it is posted in RTC?

We have an RTC project set up that business partners are allowed access into through certain restrictions/firewall connections. We would like to be able to review the comments they post to our work items before they get posted or restrict certain keyword combinations within a comment from being posted . Is this possible in RTC?

No, there is no built in mechanism and there is no approval for comment mechanism. RTC is designed to allow communication and share information, not to prevent it from happening or create additional work to approve comments.

You would have to create a custom server work item save pre-condition/advisor that checks the comment if one was created and prevents saving it.

See for examples. The posts also have a description how to get started doing this kind of extensions.
