This so perfectly describes the totality of my interaction with the site last week and the week before, it isn't even funny.
The real scary bit is how much all behaviors on Quora that show up in a feed are like Horoscopes – you can easily read your influence into just about anything someone else does on the site – so when they start asking questions totally unrelated to you, like
- "What are some good ways to relax after a rough day?",
- "how do I get creeps to stop email/txting me?", or
- "who is that guy in the window, is that you Dean?",
you just kinda start magically imprinting yourself everywhere, with all the associated effects of thinking yourself the subject of the question/answer/post/restraining order… Don't worry though, most of the time it isn't about you at all, and I'm sure all those legal notices were delivered here by mistake. I'll talk to the postal carrier tomorrow, and see what's up with that.
After you interact with someone you know on Quora, do you sometimes check back on their page to see what questions they asked based on your interaction?
