Ok, so they can't find anything wrong. I've also deactivated Akismet and the issue continues. I now have zero spam control plugins installed and wpForo still thinks almost every post is spam, even from trusted users that have been proving themselves for 8 years and thousands of posts....

The only thing that stops having to moderate 90% of new posts is turning off ALL spam protection.

To test, I deactivated and completely deleted Akismet. I turned off wpForo spam detection. Then waited. All posts went through without any moderation by me. That's great, but now I have no spam protection.

I then turned on wpForo spam protection with suspicion levels both set to 0. Suddenly I had to moderate almost everything again. There are no other spam protections installed at this time.

Now what do I do?

Hi Wendell,

about 6-10 hours ago guys from our gVectors support team investigated your website and did some changes in configuration. Please let me know if you still getting all posts unapproved?

Thanks Robert.

I just had to moderate 3 posts from very long time members with lots of posts, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Maybe everyone needs to be re-validated one more time? I don't know. I've written down those usernames to see if future posts from them will require moderation.

Ok, so it's still a problem. I've had to moderate about 40 posts so far today, and only one of them was a newly registered user. Something's definitely wrong and I have no idea what else I can possibly do.
