Ratings and Reviews
While they have a fairly good BNBR (be nice be respectful) policy. The way they enforce it is up for question though. Trust me, don’t write answers or comments that trigger any sort of bad feelings, even when the person is wrong. It’s worse when that line of words goes against their political ideal.
As I said before, their policy is good, but how they enforce it is very flawed and biased. It’s a reason why sometimes it feels like an echo chamber and not entirely reliable to find an answer. If you attempt to debate someone for they have given an factually incorrect answer, you risk your account being suspended. It almost feels as if it appeals to how people feel towards an answer rather than the merit from it. More than once have I found a top written answer that is intellectually dishonest but because that person pulled some heartstrings and is a top writer, his answer becomes a top rated since his/or her followers have upvoted the answer to golden.
1/5 stars because it strives to be a place for knowledge but it has no room for wisdom. Reliable answers are for topics that have very little room for opinions. However some of the most popular topics like politics are a breeding ground for opinions to take root and appear as facts. Even though I use quora daily, I don’t enjoy using it and I plead that Quora manages their community to treat us as adults and not as children.

Thanks for your feedback. We'll be sure to pass this along to our team.
Wow, just discovered it a few weeks ago and already it proves too much of a distraction! It’s given me many occasions to reflect on an issue that I know is important but maybe don’t know very much about -I have a particular blind spot re: Latin America - or it’s something I have studied but perhaps haven’t thought about in a while and thus am forced to collect my thoughts before answering. I’ve made some surprising discoveries doing that! It sometime shows me how or how much my views might have changed - strengthened in cases, weakened in others. I’ve had some very rewarding exchanges with people here. Happy to report something I wrote was apparently funny enough to make a stranger on the other side of the world pee her pants! I’ve also come across, unfortunately some disturbing questions or comments - most of which just show how deeply polarized a society can be. And then there have been a few intentionally provocative (in an ugly way) statements that I did not restrain pen or tongue long enough prevent me from replying with an uncivil post — a few of which have been deleted by the admins, appropriately in my view.
Copy and Paste during answering/commenting a question does not work on iPhone !
It is just ridiculous that there is no way to copy and paste what you are writing as an answer on Quora from the app on the iPhone to Notes or anywhere else for that matter. It used to be that you could copy and paste within Quora. This helped me a lot especially when I forgot a point someone made and I wanted to go back and read it during commenting. Before I would just copy where I am in the comment the clipboard; exit the comment; read the point I missed; and then go back into a reply and paste where I left off.
It seems that in an effort to contain everything written on Quora within Quora, you guys have resorted to enclosing us within your system. This is utterly unfair !!! I recently discovered that you treat the content your users write as your own personal content. We are not your writers though you treat us like employees. Allow me to copy and paste my answer anywhere that I please ! For Christ’s sake, my messages and answers are intellectual property. I should have a way on the iPhone to copy and paste them somewhere else.
Please either fix this issue and introduce a way to migrate our content to local folders and files. I repeat, answers are our property and not yours. Even if you utilize it as yours, and we may have signed away our rights when we signed up. But it is wrong to try blocking your users from existing outside your ecosystem.
