Why was Byun Baekjin banned?

Byun’s own understanding, as relayed via Emlyn Shen:

… I was notified by Quora mods via email that I was banned for possessing multiple accounts on Quora.

This is a completely false charge. I’ve always been a law-abiding Quoran. I never violated BNBR policies or any other Quoran community guidelines worthy of a ban. I take Quora’s policies very seriously. And I never had more than 1 account on Quora.

There is another Quoran account under a similar name: Baekjin Byun. What are the odds that our names are nearly identical, if this is the reason why Quoran mods charged me?

Very frankly, Quora is an amazing community. The concept is simply fantastic. Free knowledge to share with the world? Genius. Also very frankly, I am very frustrated with Quoran mods. As great As they are, they make many mistakes in “modding”. I was initially edit blocked for supposedly violating “fake-name” policy, for which I made a successful appeal. And now this issue.

From what I understand from her comment, Byun is appealing.
