comment what is the difference between である & という
I might just add as well, that the informal "って" used in conversation etc at the end of a sentence fulfills a similar role to this "という" (hearsay), and is quite commonly used.

@Lizladyninja XというY actually is used extremely frequently, and という at the end of the sentence is used reasonably often in newspapers etc I think, although you might not use it in day-to-day conversation.

comment What does …なくはない mean?
@chocolate そっか、やっぱり自分の解釈がずれているようですね^^; 指摘してくれてありがとう!それなら、"I guess he might be able, but..."のような「まあ、出来が悪いほうではないかもしれませんが、彼は筋肉馬鹿で根暗なゲームをする人なので、嫌です…」という意味になりますかね?

@小太郎 re-reading my answer, it was pretty confusing actually...I've edited it and added a note about なくもない.

comment What does …なくはない mean?
@小太郎 as far as I've always seen it, yes - I think "わけではない" is similar to "it's not like", "ないわけではない" is similar to "it's not like it's not", I'm pretty sure the latter is just the negated version of the former.

on second thoughts, I don't think "dense" is a good translation for "baka" here
