Popperians being people who are sympathetic with Karl Popper's views? In general, should groups of people who take their collective name from a proper noun in turn capitalize their name?

    You should definitely capitalise Popperians, because the word effectively has no meaning except insofar as it references the proper noun. Things are less clear-cut with, for example, Caesarian because it can now have meanings that aren't directly connected to the original proper noun. – FumbleFingers May 11 '14 at 20:23
