I never heard of Quora before now, but used to rely on Snopes back in the day.
My guess: Gatekeeping. Quora seeks to establish itself as a trusted source. In that manner, it can tell lies, hide truth, and be believed.
That is also, by the way, the role of SNOPES, a CIA front. They pretend to ferret out lies and truth, people tend to go there for the final answer. They have developed trust.
Q: “Are you sure about that? have you checked SNOPES?”
A: “Yes, I SNOPED it.”
What a beautiful way to lie!
