lighthouse keeper[edit]

If this isn't SOP, then I don't what is. --WikiTiki89 09:34, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Not sure about this, but in keep mind that there are 13 hits on OneLook for it, including entries in the Collins English Dictionary and Dictionary.com. ---> Tooironic (talk) 10:59, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
"lighthousekeeper" is attested [1], so wouldn't this be a keep under WT:COALMINE? Furius (talk) 12:17, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
A lighthouse keeper is not a custodian of a lighthouse, but rather of the light. He just happens to live in the lighthouse. SemperBlotto (talk) 12:26, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Well (a) the light is part of the lighthouse and (b) I'm sure he takes care of the rest of the house also. --WikiTiki89 12:30, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
In any event, once lighthousekeeper is attested, this will be a keeper. DCDuring TALK 12:32, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Keep, the name of a profession. Not even really very SOPpy...I mean it's a fairly unusual sense of keep. Ƿidsiþ 12:54, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Keep. Cited @ lighthousekeeper. Leasnam (talk) 13:07, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Intuitive but uncertain keep, even ignoring the coalmine issue. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:17, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Keep per COALMINE. Isn't it nice when you don't have to think and you can just throw out an all-caps word and stop other people from thinking (or stop their thoughts from mattering), too? </sarcasm> - -sche (discuss) 21:21, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Comment the "Talk:tennis player test" might also apply. - -sche (discuss) 21:21, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
Keep per discussion above. ---> Tooironic (talk) 02:36, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

Kept. DAVilla 11:32, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
