I would say no based on the quality of the website. It always shows within the first few search results for anything I look for, and from previous interactions I have learned to ignore it (same with the other mylife.com results). People have can determine really quick which sites are crappy and avoid them. Quora already falls in that spot.
They began testing ads on some questions earlier this year I heard. They've also raised like $150 million in funding over the years. I think they get about 100 million visitors a month. That gets you a lot of leeway from investors.
It's like reddit, but more professional/formal/mature audience in my opinion. There are many esoteric/niche topics being discussed that you won't find discussed elsewhere unless it's a forum specializing on that topic.
Also note about 40% of Quora users are from India as of January 2016, which is highly skewed. They have been around since early 2010. Peter Thiel and Adam D'Angelo are 2 big backers. Peter Thiel has mixed results, and Adam D'Angelo, well, you know.
Quora at it's core has a very high margin business model. The site doesn't need new content(users generate content) and doesn't host video or images so costs to run it are low. I'm sure they are burning 10x the cash they need to run/develop it right now if not more because that's the current climate.
Slap ads on it and run it with a bare bones staff and it will make plenty of profit. Might not live up to a valuation investors assigned it but it will certainly still be worth something.
Any reason Hillary Clinton’s IT guy went to Reddit but did not go to Quora (or FatWallet Technology, for that matter) for the following questions?: The expert hired to delete Hillary Clinton’s e-mails — who invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify before Congress — pleaded for help from the tech community how to do the job, according to a report Tuesday.“Hello all,” said a 2014 post on reddit by someone identifying himself as stonetear.“I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP’s (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email that I have both in a live Exchange mailbox, as well as a PST file. Basically, they don’t want the VIP’s email address exposed to anyone.”The post concludes, “Does anyone have experience with something like this, and/or suggestions on how this might be accomplished?” Another one reads: “I have a client who wants to push out a 60 day email retention policy for certain users … How would I go about this?” The posts have since been deleted.
