Am I allowed to scrape Quora to backup my answers, or is there a bulk download option?

The interpretation of Quora’s T&C I’ve seen is that you can backup/archive your own content (since you retain full rights to it), but nothing by anyone else.

Quora does not provide this functionality. Of course, Quora does not provide a whole lot of functionality.

There are several third party solutions that have come and gone. The most recent I’ve seen is:

Stefan Delic’s answer to Does Quora have any plans for a feature to allow listing and downloading of a persons own answers in bulk? (as plain text)

The one I’ve used quite happily is:

Brian Bi’s answer to When, and how, will I be able to download all of the Quora content I have produced, like the Facebook and Twitter feed export options? (as HTML)
