I’m working on a project this year to build a competitive programming FAQ. This is one in a series of articles describing the research, writing, and tool creation process. To read the whole series, see my CPFAQ category page.
One result of classifying many Quora questions is finding many duplicates. Quora knows about this and provides a Merge function. But as I have written about before, there’s also a content review bot that unmerges questions it thinks are not similar enough. I did some more investigation into this bot’s behavior, which I’ll describe this week.
