Charles Darwin

Single specific person from history. Purely encyclopaedic content. Not a path we want to go down while we remain a dictionary. Equinox 09:55, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Keep per my replies from Wiktionary:Beer parlour#Categorizing people. Both "Darwin" and "Charles Darwin" have clearly widespread use as pen names of Charles Robert Darwin. --Daniel. 10:25, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Delete as for Charles Dickens. SemperBlotto 10:33, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Delete this and Charles Dickens, as well as the senses of Darwin and Dickens that refer to specific people and all the entries in Category:Individuals. --Yair rand (talk) 11:18, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Including Jesus Christ? --Daniel. 11:33, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Delete. --Dan Polansky 11:52, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Delete per WT:NOT. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:51, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Going against the grain as above, keep. DAVilla 18:26, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Delete for the same reasons as Charles Dickens (see my post in that previous section); also note that I have the same nuanced stance on Darwin as on Dickens. — Beobach 20:12, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
