Actually, you didn't make that clear at all. You titled the thread "What do you think of Jake Mace" and went on to say: Which really in no way appears to be a clear question of "judge his martial arts". It's more like clarifying which Jake Mace you're talking about. It's like if I say "what do you think of John?" And someone asks "which John?" So I say "you know, John in accounts" Nothing in that conversation implies that I want to know what they think of his accounting prowess.
