Do they really think anyone above the age of 9 would be remotely interested in reading the shallow crap that would result from their efforts? (Come to think of it, many 9 year olds read Harry Potter, so by now they'd certainly recognize CRAP by contrast. J.K. Rowling, oh where were you when I was a kid?)
REAL people, or literary characters you'd care about, can't be summed up in a single sentence. And if we go along with these requests, we're just perpetuating the old trap of a person being definable by their name. The best thing we could do here, Fellow Travelers, is to ignore these requests. Please?!!
