Since installing the 1.2 RC1 my list of users awaiting approval is going up. In User Registration ACP options I have the "Check DNSBL" option set to block users and Enable Manual Confirmation is turned off.
Is there some other way that users would end up in the Awaiting Approval status?
Ah, I think you're on to something. Under Check DNSBL I have it set to block if fail but I missed at the top the default for StopForumSpam is to moderate registration if at least one warning flag is set.
I think I'll turn off the StopForumSpam moderate registrations option and change there StopForumSpam reject registrations down to a threshold of one.
