I came here to tell you all about it, but it looks like your own site is also being spammed using a hole in your own plugin! There’s apparently no way of vetting (as with Akismet) or even deleting questions, so stuff like this on your own site seem to be permanent unless you go into the database and hack the questions out manually.

I sure hope someone is out there listening because I’ve had to disable an entire website (built around questions and answers) due to this problem.

What do you mean there is no way to delete spam questions? Can you go into more detail about what the security issue is and why you have to go into the database to fix it?

HI ElleryG,
We are trying to prevent spam on a site through DW Question Answer. At the moment you can enable captcha of DWQA by going to the Dashboard > DWQA > Settings. You can delete question by going to this question and click on the dropdown below question title then choose delete
