This was a great post. And, like most of the questions on Quora, it makes me sad.

I always assumed that Quora was tuning the emails it sent me based upon a few searches I made about 5 years ago when I was interviewing for a job with a Big Silicon Valley Company.

It turns out.... the whole site is like that? Jesus.

Quora is the website for 17 year olds to post questions wondering if they may be TOO smart.

Yeah, that's basically half my friends, right there.

Clicking through to an original question, one's first/top answer begins "this is an insane question, made even more insane by the fact that it's perceived as entirely reasonable..." Could apply to so many!

Recently Quora helpfully emailed this to me: What would happen if someone ate a cancerous tumor?

Thanks, Quora! Not sure what I did to make your algorithms decide this is relevant to my life.

The answers to the question about why tech billionaires marry "average-looking" women starts out so promising, and then so quickly descends into a dumpster fire of PUA/evo psych horror.

It's funny to remember what a stupid craphole Quora is anytime a question you post on a Stack Exchange site gets marked off-topic or whatever. It appears Quora no longer blocks Tor though, which sounds like progress.
