These tables contain 10,384 and 108,444 records respectively of spam on our system. Enabling Anonymous Questions / Answers has become a backdoor for bots to post spam so we have had to disable this feature. How can we clear these tables? Is it ok to just delete the records or will this break integrity or corrupt the app elsewhere?

Check your own tables and see if you have the same problem. Probably the best way is to place a captcha on the page for users to complete when making an anonymous post.
