XF 1.2 Does not automatically setup some user

I have set registration to email activation. When some users register, their account is marked as pending, and then it asks me to activate them. Why is this?

P: Users are requiring administrator approval regardless of my "Enable Manual Approval" setting.
S: XenForo 1.2+ comes with a set of spam prevention features that will verify a registration against Stop Forum Spam, DNSBLs, and Project Honey Pot. Depending on your settings, it will either reject registrations or place them in manual approval. Check your spam settings here:
ACP -> Options -> Spam Management

You may still have your spam settings to strict, where some of them are becoming false positives. The system is automated, and isn't perfect, no system will be.
