Google has issues.I came across this site a few weeks ago as well when doing keyword research. I have no idea how they're ranking so high, but I have to say I'm impressed. They literally just copy a shortened version of the content from other sites and then have a link to an iframed copy of their whole page on the site. So even the link which they use to "credit" the author doesn't go to the original author's site, the visitor still remains on their site and is just shown an iframed copy of the site they ripped the content from.
I have no idea why Google allows this and rewards them with millions of visitors every month. So much for quality, original content being king, right?

Just feed it 300,000 questions and off you go.
I guess the hard part is perhaps categorizing the questions, I don't know if that can be easily automated.
That is interesting. There's a number of sites using the same tactic.seems like a script
Luckily, it's possible to remove even the most stubborn contact paper using just a few household supplies. You can lift contact paper from wood, metal, and countertops with a hairdryer, a plastic scraper, and an adhesive remover.askinglot.comRemoving Contact Paper From Wood Set a hairdryer to a medium setting. Turn the hairdryer on. Start at one corner of the contact paper. Pull the contact paper gently away from the wood while applying the heat.

This strategy could be used for quora scraping as well. Basically a script could be made to scrape quora questions, and their answers with few filters in place.
I might do it.
I'm sure there are a ton of applications.

"some bullshit about aggregating reviews around the internet to save readers time and money.

Pump out 300k pages... profit.
There's some super trashy ones like estudyassistant.com that are ranking with basically zero backlinks.As a developer generating sites like these is relatively easy. The hard part is getting them to rank from my experience. In this instance it looks like it was an e-commerce site until a couple of years ago. So might be an expired domain.
