Quora only shows its first answer on a question's page, the rest gets blurred out.

It then asks the user to register to read all the answers. I really do not like such bullying tactics and I hence will never register.

Yet before I blacklist Quora entirely from my Google searches, I wonder if there was a way to read all the answers without having to register.

  • Not an answer so I'm posting as a comment: Just go ahead and blacklist the site. While you can sometimes get around it with the URL hack - the uBlock Origin ad blocker also blocks the nag - it's worth not supporting the site. If you must link to content on the site, use an archival service such as archive.fo (one other way to get around the log in requirement.) – Jonathan Baldwin Dec 3 '16 at 21:35

Just add the get parameter ?share=1 at the end of the question's URL, and all the answers will show. It seems you have to set it only once per browser session.

I was so annoyed by this, I have even built an Chrome extension for this. (It's also open source.)

I would add to k0pernikus's great answer that the ?share=1 is officially supported and promoted by Quora (it is not some ephemeral hack that would go against their policies):

Marc Bodnick (Leads Quora business & community teams, executive at Quora):

Open any Quora URL. If you come across a Quora link anywhere and you want to read it without being asked to join Quora, you can add the text "?share=1" to the end of the URL. Example: http://www.quora.com/Hostage-Situations/What-does-it-feel-like-to-be-a-hostage-negotiator?share=1

You can use the Google Chrome extension Block Quora Login Popup too.

Quora Unblocker userscript automatically adds ?share=1 at the end of every Quora URL.
