The system works effectively like this, suppose if you’re watching a stream and notice an inappropriate comment, users could easily flag it as “spam,” “abuse,” or “other reasons.” Then, Periscope would randomly pick other viewers who watched the stream when that comment went live and ask them to vote on whether that actual comment truly was offensive.

The result of the votes is then enumerated to those randomly selected, and if the majority agrees the comment was abusive, eventually that user would have their commenting rights temporarily disabled. If the offense is often repeated, they would properly be banned for the rest of the stream. Periscope did not convey whether it would ban those users entirely if they get flagged regularly.
