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?

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

    Looks like some of this user's stolen questions and answers come from Seasoned Advice. – Michael Hampton Nov 25 at 19:16
