I want to draw more attention to a new policy
that we just published on the site:
A key principle on Quora is that public spaces can be edited by anyone who can improve it. Public spaces include questions and question details, question topics, and answer summaries.
Quora users are allowed and encouraged to edit questions to make them better -- improving clarity, language, grammar, diction, etc. However, users are not allowed to make edits that are not intended to improve the question; for example, question edits should not be intended to (1) insult the original poster of the question, (2) make a joke, or (3) disparage the question itself. These edits undermine trust in the good faith of the user community and may cause some users to become reluctant to add great content to the site. Also, edits should not change the substantive direction of a question.
Given these concerns, Quora admins may decide to quickly suspend or ban users for malicious question edits. If these users make their bad edits anonymously, admins may quickly take action consistent with Quora's policy on linking anonymous activity to accounts.
