The Q consider the Borg a toy; a play thing. They throw the Borg at other entities and see what happens.
Actually, Q yelled at his son never to provoke the Borg when Q Jr. did exactly that to Voyager.
When Q himself "threw the Borg" at the Enterprise D it was only because he was acting out after Picard rejected him.
I really believe that if Picard or Riker had just cast aside their prudishness and given Q one single night of unbridled passion and drunkenness, the Federation would have been a better place.
