Unnecesary duplication. Exact same meaning for Bog and bog in languages listed. Capitalization is optional. Lom Konkreta 17:15, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Strong oppose. No. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:42, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree with you, capitalization in the Slavic languages does not change the meaning the way it does in English. With Bog and Бог, capitalization is just a matter of personal preference. The more devout a Christian one is, the more likely he is to capitalize. Up until 20 years ago, Бог was only capitalized at the beginning of a sentence. —Stephen (Talk) 04:33, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Not sure about the move or merge, but the Polish capitalise Bóg more often than they write it in lower case, especially when addressing god - Boże, like they capitalise Pan, Pani, etc. when addressing someone. That's not a new trend. I agree about Russian, most dictionaries will use lower case бог but religious people tend to capitalise it more often now. --Anatoli 09:14, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Replying to "capitalization is just a matter of personal preference" if they are both common enough, uppercase and lowercase, they should both exist per WT:NOT and WT:Entry titles. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:04, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
if capitalization is not a meaningful differentiator, then it's misleading to have two lemma entries. Shouldn't one of these be a form-of entry? Michael Z. 2012-01-27 15:56 z
The way Bog and bog are currently defined, it seems appropriate to keep them as separate as God and god. - -sche (discuss) 22:29, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
