This page (Will the Shill) as a disambiguation page[edit]

Comments on this page following from Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation#Will the Shill:

Certainly as things stand it cannot be sustained as a disambiguation article. After consideration, I have redirected to shill. A quick Google suggests more than one source referring to George Will as "Will the Shill", but unless and until the article contains this information citing a reliable source that meets the standards for biographies of living persons, disambiguation pages should not be associating this term with this person. I do not feel qualified to determine if such content is appropriate, let alone write such a section myself. --MegaSloth (talk) 15:59, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

(further comment) I believe that redirecting to shill is appropriate as this epithet might reasonably be applied to anyone named "Will" who is associated with shill behaviour. --MegaSloth (talk) 16:02, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Thanks, MegaSloth. momoricks 22:19, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
