XF 1.2 Spam Management too restrictive?

    I run XF 1.2.4 and I use the Spam Management function that I really like. However, is this possible that the default settings are a bit too restrictive?

    When I look at the account that are waiting confirmation, there are many that seem legit to me.

    The system will need to be fine tuned to your specific needs. The defaults work to catch many of the spammers, but if you feel it is catching too many false positives, you should loosen the restrictions.

    Here's my settings, how can I soften them? What parameters should I change? I'm not very familiar with antispam things....

    id be curious to see a user that you think is legit that has been caught by the above SFS settings.

    You can increase the number of flags required to match before moderation occurs.

    I've had several on my site.

    There are only a few fields.
    Experiment with the values until you strike a balance which suits your site.

    The problem is if I loosen the restrictions too much few spammers will register.

    I'll try few things and see
