If you don’t know, Quora is a site where members can ask any question and have it answered by other member. It’s touted as a place to show or to grow your expertise. If you like Quora, I make no judgment. Maybe it’s the categories that I follow – mostly writing, literature and the sciences – but I find the site to be the greatest repository of stupidity on the planet. And, no, I haven’t explored every corner of the world. I’m sure that it can be topped. It worries me about the prospects for humanity, though.

Things that are just a waste of my time:

  1. Questions that are so stupid that someone had to make it up just to get a reaction.
  2. Questions that could be answered by one click of a search engine. Why would I take time away from my schedule and family to make the click for you?
  3. Questions that are obviously homework questions.
  4. Questions that show an alarming lack of education or interest in learning.
  5. Every page of my feed is laced – no pun intended – with scantily clad young women with questions that are clearly meant for my demographic.

No thanks.
