Quora answers, some by me

Why don’t you blog on sites where you can be blocked, censored or ostracized?

quoraQuora is a “question-and-answer website where questions are asked, answered, edited, and organized by its community of users in the form of opinions.” It began in June 2009, though I’d only been aware of it for the past couple years.

I’ve answered a handful of Quora questions, even some directed to me. Some of the ones I have NOT answered I did not think were questions that the person really wanted to know, just codifying their POV, such as “Why isn’t Hillary in jail yet?”

  1. I post on Quora, too. I find it interesting so many queries are about church, who is going to Hell, “Star Trek” and what doctors do that we don’t know about.

  2. Never heard of it before (wich you might have guessed I presume 😉 )

    Like all other info in the net… questioning the true value of the answers Always makes me somewhat in doubt about adding to such a site or not…

  3. I used to love drama on the internet but it is no fun any longer so I try and project positive energy, but I have occasional relapses.
