Checking my inbox, I have a couple of Seti@home moderation notices being stored.

Header is "Subject", "Sender" and "Message" by means of its contents.

So I am receiving a Moderation Message where my username by means of a link is being listed as well as a red X for possible blocking of the Sender.

The small square to the left of the "Subject" column or field, below the header may actually be ticked, but for which purpose or intention?

At the bottom of each Message, I am able to either Respond, or Delete the Message.

If the name of the Moderator is being given, as well as the userid of the Moderator (typically not linked) is being given, this way of doing things is looking a bit awkward or strange to me.

Perhaps something could be done here in order to make certain things slightly better.

Deletion of the PM, with the "Delete selected messages" button at the bottom. This is for when you want to delete a bunch of PMs at the same time.

You only get the name of the moderator to know who dunnit, it's not giving you the right to go PM this person back with diatribes. As is stated in the moderation rules
Do not posts comments related to specific moderator actions. The moderators may be contacted at seti_moderators@ssl.berkeley.edu

Such as what? Without anyone telling what could be done better, there's no way to make things better. Now it's just a matter of misunderstanding or not knowing what that meant.
