Are women more easily offended than men?
This could be objectively measured by the nature and number of actions taken against Quora members judged to be offensive by male and female admins and members.
Taken as whole it could suggest that women are more censorious than men. Bearing in mind that women can vote, this would have an impact on our liberties that would be increasingly limited by government legislation introduced in an attempt to chase the female vote.

Is Quora inquorate without Claire Khaw?
A Facebook friend asks: "Is it possible, in the UK, to meet a sane woman under the age of 30 who hasn't already given birth to another man's mistake?" What does this say about the UK?
Possibly Insincere Question: This question has been flagged as possibly insincere.
When this topic tag is applied to a question, the question must also be reported along with a specific explanation as to what makes the question appear insincere.
Inappropriate application of this topic tag will be considered vandalism.
If you are the question asker, and would like moderation to consider removing the tag, you should both (1) send an email to email@example.com and (2) post a comment on the question. Since this is a debate about the intent of the question asker, it is generally helpful if the asker is not anonymous; Quora Moderation is more likely to remove the topic if they know the question asker's name.
http://www.quora.com/Tatiana-Estévez It was a FEMALE admin who identified this question as "possibly insincere".
"How can a fact be "possibly insincere"? This comment was in fact made and it is well-known that there are many single mothers in Britain, as well as the rest of the West. Is Quora trying to stifle debate on a genuine social issue?"
http://www.quora.com/Judith-Meyer another female admin has flagged the question "Has feminism increased taxes and decreased liberty?" as "possibly insincere".
I believe I have now been permanently banned, at around 1700 hrs BST.
Anyone who would like to take it up with them should join and ask them:
"What did Claire Khaw say that was so bad that she had to be banned from Quora?"
Can you imagine yourself being immediately banned for daring to ask such a question by the female admins? I can. But do it anyway, if you value free speech, just to make a point.

"I'm an admin and employee at Quora. Fyi - we don't disclose reasons why people are banned because it's not fair to the person.
You should know that Adam and Charlie (our founders) emphasize process, fairness, and rule-based decisions in moderation and it's important to us that we apply this philosophy in our choices."
Is that platitudinous CRAP or not?
What is the problem with this question?? It really is a stupid level of censorship. This woman at https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140414153724-24369406-the-truth-about-internet-trolls is known to be particularly censorious and regularly abuses her power it has been said. She appears to be the one who locked the question. http://bosquevillage.quora.com/?__snids__=409689958&__nsrc__=2
