The account has been suspended, I'd like to thank everyone who helped! I have removed the comments posted by "Isa Bria" after the real Isa Bria has contacted me and asked to remove them.
We have verified, in the meantime, that the same person impersonating me on Quora is the one who used Isa's name in those comments.
Someone has been impersonating me on Quora. They use my real name, they link to my homepage and claim to be a set theory Ph.D. student from Jerusalem.
But it's not me. Even if there was another Asaf Karagila out there in the world, I think it's pretty thin that I wouldn't have known him since we both study at the same place and the same topic. The homepage links HERE! This one!
Somehow the Quora management is convinced that the identity is real (I have reported it, but the "unverified" status was removed after a few hours).
The account is asking a lot about Iran and Nazism related questions, and politics related nonsense topics. Anyone who has ever met me knows how much I despise these topics, and those who know me will instantly recognize this is not my work. Here are a couple of screenshots, courtesy of a friend.
The last question in the second one is actually shows that this cannot possibly be me. Why would anyone who was born and raised in Israel ask where to go to vacation in Israel? Why would I need Quora to find recommendation about beaches, or hotels or cities?
Please report that account, who goes by my name. Please report every post they make, and please help Quora understand that this is not me. Please spread the word, ask your friends who have Quora accounts to join this effort, and help me restore my identity to its original owners.
If you have any additional thoughts, I'd be happy to hear them.
