Anybody here interested in challenging this answer? I mean, the idea named in the question is obviously idiotic, but holy shit...

https://www.quora.com/Why-shouldnt-Democrats-add-seats-to-the-Supreme-Court-when-they-get-into-power-This-is-a-brilliant-plan-and-will-stop-anyone-like-Trump-from-ever-getting-into-power-again/answer/Bill-James-81

To get even more granular, here's this comment.

That post is of a far lower caliber of intelligence than I've come to expect from Quora. No point in replying to it.

I have seen a bunch of answers of this kind for quite a while. Here's another recent example: https://www.quora.com/How-is-it-that-with-Trumps-cabinet-picks-resigning-all-the-time-over-scandals-that-his-supporters-still-claim-hes-draining-the-swamp/answer/Bryan-Shoemaker-4 I've even bookmarked some of the least coherent ones to check out later.

The difference is, they were usually collapsed, or close to it. This may be the first one of this kind with 800+ upvotes. Even the conservative Quorans with 10k+ followers, (which basically lets you write any rubbish and still get at least a few dozen guaranteed upvotes) don't always manage that.

Like, you've probably all seen Jon Davis there by now, who is basically the ultimate voice of US military there (though his progressive mirror Sophia Di Tricht is a close second), gaining many thousands followers in that manner before branching into other areas, like anime, or being a "supporter of Trump supporters". Even with his current 65k followers, though, he still only managed 65 upvotes for this equivalency between Roy Moore and Doug Jones: https://www.quora.com/What-do-pro-Trump-voters-think-of-Doug-Jones-Do-you-think-his-policy-positions-are-so-bad-for-Alabama-that-he%E2%80%99d-be-a-worse-choice-than-Roy-Moore-Jones-won-several-counties-that-went-for-Trump-in-2016/answer/Jon-Davis-10



I used to follow Davis, albeit just to hear the other perspective. Had to stop that after a while. He wrote some answer about how Democrats have no respect for "southern culture," and that the states should be allowed to ban gay marriage if they want. He's one of those closet authoritarians who think that "state's rights" means the right of the state to take away your freedoms.
