Anybody have invites and willing to share?
I am at email@example.com
I´d like to know how to use Quora as well. Where can I find George´s reply?
if anyone wants to invite you to write me a merce.galan @ gmail.com
There is something the Quora guys have done in the registration process. No one from who I know in India has been able to sign up without an invite. Strange.
I got an invitation in my inbox from an acquaintance. The email also showed me other people I knew. When I followed the link, I was obliged to choose between either my Twitter account, Facebook or Gmail login.
I chose Twitter because I have fewer people there and I know these programs get hold of your mailing list and start inviting them without your knowing.
Bingo!This is what happened. Two days after I had confirmed my address and entered the site, I noticed it had already befriended an x number of people (without my doing anything - so I suppose they must have received an automatic mail telling them I had invited them) and was being followed by so many others. I was also inserted in a number of groups/topics I have no interest in.
I must confess I disliked the experience profoundly.
PS - I have also noticed that I cannot just delete my account. Just deactivate it (like in Facebook) - so although I am not active, the information is all kept there. Sounds like the lyrics of The Eagles Hotel California:
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave"
We are all just prisoners here, of our own device...
Thats really weird! I wonder why they are doing that.
Eagles is really relevant :). Let us rebel with Pink Floyd!
