Based on all this data, and currently this is my most engaged user, I have to approve his posts every time he adds one. I don't feel like the settings are set in such a way that this should be necessary. This user should be able to post without having to get posts approved. What could be the problem?

1. If Akismet is enabled it may have user email specific spam data.

2. Edit Usergroup of this user and make sure the "Front - Can pass moderation" is enabled.

3. Delete user cache in Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page.

4. Make sure this user doesn't have unapproved posts in Dashboard > Forums > Moderation admin page.

5. Make sure you use the latest version of wpForo.

1. Akismet is not installed

2. This setting was not checked. Can you please explain more about what it allows.

3. Will look into this. 

4. All posts are approved.

Not checked? So I think this is the problem. You don't allow users to pass moderation step, this say all posts must be moderated.

That did it! All posts are currently passing moderation as expected. Thanks!
