Politically biased.

ScipioXII

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.

The previous review was talking about political questions. Unless there was a no politics no religion ban, you will always have conjecture, rhetoric and biased points of view. It is an open forum, and aside from ad hom and foul language, people are free to speak their mind. But there is nothing wrong with an open debate that focuses on politics having spin. People are still given upvotes and if you feel an answer is wrong just don’t follow them, and if people keep upvoting bs block them too. The site is well managed, and while you can find nonsense in there..if you take the time to choose reliable people to interact with, your gonna get more reliable answers. My only qualm would be that people upvote people because of their celebrity and sometimes they make the content secondary to the topic and question. And of course being an open forum there is content that is not accurate. But these people are rarely upvotes and their content is ussually not found on your feed.

Quora is not perfect but it’s the best I’ve seen.

Quora is not perfect but it’s the best I’ve seen. There is no other place I know of where you can a question and get truly good (and sometimes great) response on everything from condensed matter and super conductors to comics to Tolkien to “what is the most German thing ever?”

It manages to do so in a generally polite way. There are some snarky answers. There is also a bit of occasional trolling. But if you come to it with a real sense of curiosity and respect you can learn so much.

The site has made a number of tweaks, not all of which I like or think are helpful. And there are certainly a few I’d love to see incorporated. But I respect the company for constantly trying to improve rather than being content to stick with what works until it stops.
