One feature of your mop[edit]

is that you can use it to block and unblock people. Just don't use it to splash water onto any electrical parts. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 18:34, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Aye yi yi. Okay. Uh. Very well. I solemnly swear to use the mop with restraint and wisdom, because excess water on the floor makes people slip up and fall down and then they get mad. The mark of a good mopper is you forget he's been there after five minutes, except the place is all clean now. --Maxus (talk) 01:35, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
It seems I've lost the mop. I don't mind admitting that when it was bestowed I gained a couple more gray hairs. --Maxus (talk) 01:51, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
I reduced the duration of your protection of Talk:Unified Conspiracy Theory from indefinite to 1 week as an indefinite protection of a talk page seemed a bit heavy handed, but perhaps you have specific reasons/arguments for an indefinite protection? If so, feel free to present them alongside an increased protection duration, but usually protections are set to expire after somewhere between 1 week and 1 month and this tends to be enough to discourage the trolls/vandals.

Oh, crap. Honestly, I forgot to set a duration because I was more concerned with making sure I excluded BoNs, and me never having protected a page before. Thank you for catching that, and I'll be sure to check it in the future. --Maxus (talk) 07:38, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
No worries, I had a hunch it was simply an oversight, but thought I'd check with you just to be sure - in case I was missing something ;-) ScepticWombat (talk) 08:10, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, the page IS a bit of a nut-case magnet, but yeah, a week to let it cool off seems nice. --Maxus (talk) 17:21, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
Considering the page is only a stub, and somewhat overlaps with Crank magnetism, is it worth keeping? Look at the revision history of the talk page.--Pokefrazer (talk) 18:25, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
I'd say it's worth turning into a section on the Conspiracy Theory page. Some cranks really do believe that a single group is orchestrating everything. It's a crazy belief and ergo deserves to be dissected. My other part is the assumption alternately assuming it's hyper-competent enough to control the world's governments and political organizations and religions and scientists, but stupid enough to put signs and symbols of their control everywhere and to not take down websites/videos on YouTube. Cranks have to put their money somewhere.
This is a topic I'll work on. But this is also less than ten minutes before I gotta leave for work and I can't find my left shoe, so I'll have to cut it short. --Maxus (talk) 18:24, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
