Disturbing Privacy Invasion from Quora.com

Keeping in mind I’m not asking to be a ‘verified expert’ and I’ve already registered my commonly used name.

I’ve had my account (to provide them free content) blocked until I verify my name.

This is the reply:

A Quora admin sent you a message on Quora

 A Quora admin said:

"Hello,
 
In order to confirm that this is your real full name, could you please provide verification by providing a link to an established LinkedIn or other real name social media profile or authoritative webpage (for instance, a university or company profile page) in response to this message, or alternatively by sending a scan or photo of your legal identification (please remove or blur any non-name information before sending) tomoderation@quora.com
 
Thank you,
Quora Admin”

BTW: This happened after several administrators strongly disagreed with my political viewpoint.

Nearly half of young men report ‘sexual coercion’

A huge proportion of young men say they have ended up submitting to unwanted sexual advances—and 95% of the time, a female they knew was the aggressor, according to new research.

The study found that 43% of high school or college-age men reported being coerced into unwanted sexual behavior, CBS reports. “Sexual victimization continues to be a pervasive problem in the United States, but the victimization of men is rarely explored,” the lead researcher said in a press release.

"Our findings can help lead to better prevention by identifying the various types of coercion that men face and by acknowledging women as perpetrators against men." How the coercion broke down: 18% said they were physically forced into it; 31% said they were verbally compelled.

Around half of the students who gave in ended up having intercourse, while 40% said the result was kissing or fondling, the Smithsonian notes. Some 7% said they were coerced after being given alcohol or drugs—and experienced “significant distress” as a result.

The unwanted sex, however, did not appear to affect the young men’s self-esteem. “It may be the case that sexual coercion by women doesn’t affect males’ self-perceptions in the same way that it does when women are coerced. Instead it may inadvertently be consistent with expectations of masculinity and sexual desire,” the lead researcher says.

Most of them we don’t need to see,

Whoo wee.

Forget Google Glass, Android Wear, Smartwatches or contact lenses that give you night vision. Instead let’s talk about the awesomeness that is this 17th century Chinese abacus ring. It’s wearable tech from the Qing Dynasty, perhaps the world’s oldest smart ring.
Measuring a mere 1.2 centimeter-long by 0.7 centimeter-wide, the miniature abacus is a fully functional counting tool, but it’s so tiny that using it requires an equally dainty tool, such as a pin, to manipulate the beads, which are each less than one millimeter long.

"However, this is no problem for this abacus’s primary user—the ancient Chinese lady, for she only needs to pick one from her many hairpins."

oh my god ancient chinese ladies knew where it was at
