Was it ever. As posted on Preemptive Real Name block? by Nick Nicholas on Bug? or Feature?,
A number of weirdnesses happened on 2017–03–28, including this [three Quora users turning into “Quora User”], a post disappearing from The Insurgency [Habib Fanny: BNBR violation against myself by Nick Nicholas on The Insurgency], and one of the people here’s answers ending up misattributed to another—before an outage that lasted hours. Seems like Quora’s database(s) were corrupted.
