A while back I posted this question on Server Fault. I now see that it appears on Quora with both the question and answer copied from my question. Why is my question appearing there? Is Quora stealing from Stack Exchange? If so, for what purpose?

    Feels like that one particular user is. Bot? Person trying to get what quora's equivilent of rep fast? Does seem fishy – Journeyman Geek Nov 25 '18 at 6:46

    I reported the answer on Quora for plagiarism. Let's see what comes out of it. – muru Nov 25 '18 at 7:19

  • @and myself: Isn't it more than a guideline? Like an actual legal requirement? – Peter Mortensen Nov 25 '18 at 17:41
  • @PeterMortensen welp, I messed up, but I also put the link for Quora team to read the legal requirement... – No Distraction Wizard Nov 25 '18 at 18:04

    Looks like some of this user's stolen questions and answers come from Seasoned Advice. – Michael Hampton Nov 25 '18 at 19:16
  • After almost a month... looks like Quora didn't do anything to any of our reports... :( – No Distraction Wizard Dec 17 '18 at 3:33
  • I just checked the link I posted above. The question is still there, but the answer has been removed. – kojow7 Dec 17 '18 at 19:10
