The internet's self-conscious act of intellectual validity and authority. Unsurprisingly primarily self-centered and authoritarian instead of rational.
Some of the more objective or positive entries might at first make one assume that most people there are not just as insufferable as anywhere else and like any community on the internet, albeit maybe at the same time with an even more all-encompassing entitlement and smug self-satisfaction.
And assume that the triviality of most of the questions would be self-aware and not lost on most of the people.

Highly restrictive, not only in the artificial question and answer format, but also the ultra-strict length limitations and rampant auto-correct functions, Content Review and straightforward censorship.

Moderation is more concerned with keeping up appearances than with moral tasks, consistency and transparency. Sanctimonious, arrogant, prejudiced and irrational and with a cult-like devotion to their brand and policy taken literally and subjectively.

Actual psychopaths, either self-proclaimed in order to effectively show off or those whose practices are harboured there, are the hipsters of the place.
Your mom recently found quora and now thinks she is one of the coolest, most elite people around.

Quora is giving me the habit of thinking only in questions and and not on my own anymore, and making me think I should follow every response like scripture, simply because it's on Quora.

A Q&A website devoted to far-left propaganda, extreme atheism, and hating all Republicans, Christians, and anyone who is not a feminist. The site is a raging cesspool of self-proclaimed intellectuals who believe thesaurus-abuse makes them sound smart. Quora is a place with extremely restrictive moderation; in other words, they censor the shit out of anyone who they don't agree with. As Quora moderators have the power to remove questions, delete and edit answers, and delete users entirely, a Quora has developed a culture of deleting and censoring anyone who does not agree with the herd.

The site is a breeding ground for prententious assholes to brag about how high their IQ is and how many college classes they've taken. The result is a gigantic pissing contest of self-centered IQ worship and a competition for who has the most credentials, and anyone who has an opinion but didn't go to MIT or Harvard for 12 years gets downvoted into oblivion and censored by the moderators for not being intellectual enough.
"Hey man, have you ever tried Quora?"
"I did! I used it for two days but my account was deleted because I said I wasn't a liberal."

A left wing ultra communist guerrilla site filled with 'experts' who actually have no life in the real world and are complete miserable losers . Quora is the most happening place for intellectual masturbation. Most of the 'top writers' are actually con men who claim to be geniuses when they are actually selling dog poop to the gullible Quora crowd or angry bitter middle aged feminists l . Most of the rubbish these typical 'top' writers who are 'flops' in real world write get a rousing round of applause from the self acclaimed intellectuals who don't have a job , spending all their time on Quora , masturbating the rest of day.
A typical day in Quora consists of people agreeing on how Castro is a great man and how North Korea is a great place and how trump snatched an Ice cream from a kid when he was a school . Quorans also generally believe women should be allowed to have a dick of their own so that they don't depend on men for sex. There are several Indians asking what foreigners think about their country and if they have a chance of getting laid , angry feminists, angry atheists, communists all singing in chorus along with these acclaimed 'top' writers resulting in the biggest garbage dump online.
Quora Feminist : I believe I should be allowed to take a dump in the middle of the street and everyone should watch it and appreciate the beauty of my shit because as a woman, every dirty aspect of me has to be accepted
Quora users ; oooooo, that was soooo empowering, let's follow her and give her a million upvotes and congratulate each other for this amazing intellectual experience we had at Quora today
Quora Feminist : I will never have a shower and will make sure the thickest bush grows inside my armpit
Quora usersw : ooooooo...I just cummed to that intellectual masterpiece

Site full of left-wing nuts who scream "patriarchy" if you disagree with a woman.
Quora User (Female): 1+1 = 3

Quora User (Male): Um, I actually think it's 2...

Everyone else: Male chauvinist pig! Stop feeding the patriarchy!

Typical Quoran: "WOMEN IN AMERICA ARE OPPRESSED TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME YOU'RE A MALE CHAUVINIST MISOGYNIST RAPIST!!!"

Rational Person: "But how are women in America highly oppressed? After controlling for educational factors and hours worked, they make about 98% of what men do."

Quoran: "YOU'RE PART OF RAPE CULTURE YOU PATRIARCHAL PRIVILEGED ASSHOLE!!! WOMEN ARE ALWAYS SEXUALIZED IN THE MEDIA AND THAT'S WHY THEY FEEL BAD ABOUT THEIR BODIES."

Rational Person: "I agree that the media negatively portrays overweight people, but protagonists in any major TV show or movie are usually skinny regardless of gender.

Quoran: "UMMM...UMMM...WELL YOU'RE A RAPIST!!!"

Rational Person: Time to go to another site...
