To my acute surprise, I have:
- 215 questions
- 1615 answers
I already talked about why I ask questions in Nick Nicholas’ answer to As a Quoran with a reputation for your answers, which of your questions do you wish attracted more answers?
There are people on Quora who seek information, but well… even if Quora says that’s a purpose of Quora, that’s not how I use it, and I suspect that’s not how a lot of voluminous writers use it.
The questions I ask are usually either followups of discussions I’ve had (in which case they’re targetted—sometimes at myself—and will likely get an answer); or they are questions that arise out of discussions or answers, that I throw out there just in case, but am not really hanging out for answers to.
