Why is it hard to see who the poster of a question is on Quora?

My answer to Why is it hard to see who the poster of a question is on Quora? on Quora

This is probably my favourite thing about Quora, and one of the reasons I think it’s so much more interesting than other Q&A sites.

Questions on Quora don’t “belong” to anyone—in fact, once they have been added other community members can edit them to clarify their wording etc. As a result, you can think of Quora as a sort of infinite space where every possible question has already been asked... they just need topics added so that people can find them!
