Opting in to marketing emails is in the terms and conditions, the user doesn’t have a choice
Shame on @Quora for implementing a dark pattern that forces me to download their app without an option to exit this horrible popup
@Quora, please let me know when you have fixed this very dark example of
@darkpatterns. I do not have the app and do not wish to download it. You leave me no other choice than leaving Quora. If that's what you want, so be it.
There’s a dark pattern when you’re browsing @Quora on mobile. You can read an article for a while, but then this pop up shows up. There’s no way to exit out of the pop up without choosing one of these options and they both link to the App Store.
