    Hopefully the title is self explanatory. Suddenly, I noticed that any comments from logged in members are awaiting moderation although the option is not enabled in the backend. Any thoughts?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I did try those things and none have worked. Also, b/c this is a production site, we don't change things frequently. It appears as if it started happening all of a sudden.

    Did you upgrade WP recently? Or a plugin or your theme?

    Literally, nothing has changed, and all of a sudden it started misbehaving

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of your version of WordPress.
