I think there are just two ways this can happen.

1) You are 'moderated' and member_moderation_action is Discard.

2) Your post is seen as from a nonmember and either you are in
discard_these_nonmembers or generic_nonmember_action is Discard.

You can get more information in case 2) by setting
forward_auto_discards to Yes.

(All the above settings except your moderated bit are on Privacy
options...->Sender filters)
