I posted this question as an example of something a marketer might post. Adam knows who I am, so that maybe affected his answer, but I don't think many marketers will know what Euclidean distance is. :) Is there some way we can tag or flag posts to indicate that the user is looking for a non-technical / "ELI5" answer?
My suggestion is follow up with a comment on the answer asking them to clarify with more details. I have no idea what Euclidean distance is either... but there is no reason that;
- you have to accept the answer
- you have to upvote the answer. Downvote if you think it is wrong
- somebody else can provide an answer
- you can provide your own answer, expanding on any of the other answers already provided if you feel they are insufficient
