XF 1.2 Users awaiting approval?

Just recently (the last 2 or 3 days) we've had several users who've registered but been put into the users awaiting approval queue.

Does anyone know what determines if they get put into that queue? I"m assuming at the minute it's one of the core anti-spam features? Is that correct?

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
