After you set the Q&A CAPTCHA, you need to check the Inactive Users list for spammers that have already registered but not yet activated. That's one way they make it seem like the Q&A isn't working, but they actually had already registered.
The Q&A CAPTCHA questions and answers should also be unique. For example, the question "what color is the sky?" is obviously long broken, so don't use it.
It seems like you might have already read it, but if not, read Preventing Spam in phpBB3
for more info.
