I've asked Is the object in “Eighty-six forty-five.” a proper noun? and if it should be capitalized. One exchange of comments was deleted (of the "did you even bother to google the rule... it took me 10 seconds" variety), and it looks like I've had a total of 3 down votes and one up.
In that case and in another, I've had proposed answers in the form of comments, but so far no actual answers.
I'd thought there would be a simple straightforward answer, and the answer would be no, it is not. It's not a given name, or a well-known nick-name, but the numbering is well known enough that in a discussion or writing related to US politics, a number in the forties would very likely be referring to a president, and so the reference to the individual is clear even though it is not an accepted name of the individual.
But I'm not sure that's correct. So I've asked.
Any ideas why there's been such a bumpy ride, or if there is something that could be done to improve the reception?
