    Quora has human moderators who are PAID to moderate Quroa. Trolling is NOT tolerated for very ling. you also have to giv e your real life name when sign up with Quora. Quora is NOT hosted by a publicly owned business that has to make profit to satisfy the major and minor stockholders. like Yahoo WAS and Verizon IS. Quora is a genuine massage board. Discussion and debate are encouraged.. YA IS NOT and NEVER has been a chat forum, even though people INSIST on using or misusing YA that way, or discussion board.Many of the people who answer question on YA are professionals.

    There are NO account levels, so there is NO point gaming and "cheating' to reach higher account levels like is pandemic on YA.

    "...Quora is a question-and-answer site where questions are asked, answered, edited and organized by its community of users. Its publisher, Quora, Inc., is based in Mountain View, California. The company was founded in June 2009, and the website was made available to the public on June 21, 2010.[4] Users can collaborate by editing questions and suggesting edits to answers that have been submitted by other users..

    ...History[edit]

    Quora was co-founded by Adam D'Angelo and Charlie Cheever, both of whom are former Facebook employees, it is a website where people can find answers to obscure questions, and explore complex topics in-depth.

    Quora's user base has grown quickly since 2010.[6] In April 2017, Quora claimed to have 190 million monthly unique visitors, up from 100 million a year earlier.[7]

    In June 2011, Quora redesigned its website to improve website navigation and usability.[8] Quora made an official iPhone app on September 29, 2011, followed by an Android app on September 5, 2012.

    In September 2012, Quora announced that co-founder Charlie Cheever would leave his position as a co-operator of the company, although he would continue in an advisory role.[9]

    In January 2013, Quora launched a blogging platform, allowing users to post non-answer content on their profiles.[10]

    Quora launched a full-text search of questions and answers on its website on March 20, 2013,[11] and extended the feature to mobile devices in late May 2013.[12] It also announced in May 2013 that all its usage metrics had tripled relative to the same time in the prior year.[13] In November 2013, Quora introduced a feature called Stats to allow all Quora users to see summary and detailed statistics regarding how many people had viewed, upvoted, and shared their questions and answers.[14][15] TechCrunch reported that, although Quora had no immediate plans for monetization, they believed that search ads would likely be their eventual source of revenue.[16]

    In April 2014, it was announced that Quora was raising $80 million from Tiger Global at a reported $900 million valuation.[17][18][19][20] Quora was also one of the members of the Summer 2014 Y Combinator batch.[21][22][23]

    In March 2016, Quora acquired Parlio online community website.[24] In April of that year, the company also began a limited rollout of advertising on the site.[25]

    In October 2016, Quora launched a Spanish version to the public.[26] Following this announcement in early 2017, a beta of Quora in French was announced.[27] In May 2017, the launch of beta versions in German and Italian launched.[28] In September 2017, a beta version in Japanese was launched.[29]

    In April 2017, Quora was reported to have received Series D funding, with a valuation of $1.8 billion.[30]

    Operation[edit]

    Quora requires users to register with their real names rather than an Internet pseudonym (screen name);[31] although verification of names is not required, false names can be reported by the community. This was done with the ostensible intent of adding credibility to answers. Users with a certain amount of activity on the website have the option to write their answers anonymously, but not by default. Visitors unwilling to log in or use cookies have had to resort to workarounds to use the site.[32] Users may also log in with their Google or Facebook accounts using the OpenID protocol. They can upvote or downvote answers, and suggest edits to extant answers provided by other users. The Quora community includes some well-known people, such as Jimmy Wales, Richard A. Muller, Barack Obama, and Adrián Lamo.[33][34][35][36]

    Quora has developed its own proprietary algorithm to rank answers, which works similarly to Google PageRank.[37] Quora uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud technology to host the servers that run its website.[38][39]..."

    Quora wants you to show to the world your real name, otherwise you can't write there. So no, it isn't better than yahoo answer. My privacy is very important, you can find trolls on here, when you shut down the computer they don't bother you, while in the real world, some psycho can stalk you.
