Does Quora have the same problem as Stack Overflow?

My answer to Does Quora have the same problem as Stack Overflow? on Quora

Quora isn’t one community, it’s thousands of separate communities—a community for each tag, and then a community for each user comprising their followers. As such, I think it will scale much better than the Stack Overflow community did, without needing to split out in to separate verticals.
