What is VERY odd is that for a logged in user, I am able to control what they do.
I am using the membership plug-in from you guys as well. I've created a new subscription called Visitor and assigned it the inactive role.
In Q&A settings, I only allow inactive to view questions.
I'm not sure if Membership is not actually setting the role correctly, or if it is Q&A that that isn't applying the permissions correctly.
I think I've done everything correct, since I can perfectly control the a registered users access.
