Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic, always something new to learn.
I mostly use Quora instead of books to learn. I love how I can follow different topics and learn a bit about a variety of topics each day. Over time I end up reading a lot about one topic. Ahaha. I am an expert in everything cat, big and small. Women, philosophy, animals, psychology and much more because of my Quora use over the years. Overall. A great place to learn, and also to gain insight into different cultures and experiences through personal answers.
Frustrating to use
The biggest problem with Quora is with asking questions. Quora content review is all out there to ruin your questions and drive you crazy. It will change your question, change your topics, censor you for no reason, and it will never give up. There was once I asked a question about chemical paint strippers, and my question was flagged as adult content and I was barred from requesting answers, and the topics 'strip clubs' and 'strippers' were forcibly added to my topics. (A few minutes after removing those unwanted topic tags, they would automatically reappear; so in the end I just gave up.) There was also once when I used a possessive 'its' in my question, and Quora content review changed it to 'it's' (short for 'it is'). Recently I asked a question about 'faded impressions', but Quora content review wouldn't allow me to name my source (David Hume, a philosopher) in the question or in the topics. It also kept on adding 'philosophy of everyday life' to my topics, even though it was a question about knowledge and epistemology, not about everyday life.
If you're going to ask a question on Quora, be prepared for insane edit wars with Quora Content Review. You will frequently have to accept the fact that your question will be defaced and distorted. (Or merged with other questions that are not really that similar.)
Trigger happy reporters.
There are a lot of good people on Quora, but some not so. Many people will just comment on your answer trying to get a rise out of you. Others will just report everything you say.
The report function is completely used and abused on Quora. For example, one guy wasn’t arguing the point, so I called his argument a straw man. It was taken down by Quora moderation. I wrote an answer criticising the answers of another Quoran, taken down again. In this answer, I didn’t comment on the other Quoran’s character but his work, used no insults and was objective and polite as possible. Still taken down.
Perhaps Quora would take this review down? Or ask Apple to? It seems they stop at absolutely nothing. The Quora moderation system is incredibly vague, they never specify what they’ve taken you down for, but direct you to a long yet somehow equally vague post about its policy. It needs serious reform.
