Check your spamx.log file (you can do that from the Spam-X plugin). It should have an entry for that case and why it was considered spam.

is it considered a spam because of the keywords that that user used in his comment post?

or does spam x do that by default

please let me know

It looks like you added "meth" to your personal blacklist. That does, however, also match words like "method". So I'd suggest you remove that entry again.
