My problem with the Quora Partner Programme

One of the things I do is answer questions on Quora. I’m not a regular or anything. I crossed the 10,000 mark only a few days ago. There are those with millions of views per week. I’m nowhere near, I’m nowhere that dedicated to anything in the world. But I do get answer requests every few days. These range from “okay” to utterly stupid/obvious. I am against systems that make people intellectually lazy, and unfortunately, with Quora rolling out the Partner Programme, it is slowly but surely becoming exactly that.
