You mean this isn’t already underway?
Jason MacDonald characterised one binary split; I’ll characterise a different split, which I’ve been rather outspoken in—and I’ll go all BNBR and assume that Jason is not describing the same split.
There’s a dividing line between those who think both Quora’s policy and its implementation of policy is good and/or not to be questioned; and those who have misgivings or outright rebel against either.
As much of The Insurgency discusses, the latter cannot “win”, because it’s Quora’s policy and its implementation of policy.
There’s a separate dividing line between those who want Quora to be about sharing knowledge, and those who want Quora to (also) be social media. (The ability to comment on every answer is about this dividing line, I think, rather than the former.)
Various statements and actions from Quora have weighed against Quora being a social medium; the same seems to hold about the UX trends documented at Bug? or Feature? lately.
FWIW, I don’t think you’ll find many fans of Quora UX, as opposed to Quora Moderation, so I don’t think that’s a dividing line.
