Lowering protection on the Cultural marxism REDIRECT[edit]

Hello Floq! Over at the Frankfurt School talk page we've decided to change the heading for the Cultural Marxism section, from Conspiracy Theory - to Cultural Marxism conspiracy theory. So we were just wondering if you might lower the protection to the redirect page (we're asking you first as per WP:RFP) [1] alternatively you could update it yourself we just need it to redirect to the new section title "Frankfurt School#Cultural Marxism conspiracy theory" thanks muchly! --Jobrot (talk) 14:23, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi @Jobrot:, I've changed the target section. It's kind of borderline whether to reduce the protection (I note Cultural Marxism (upppercase M) is only semi'd). But for some reason this one has been recreated a few times, so I'll leave it at full unless someone complains. And thank you for a nice, simple, non-stress-inducing request, I needed one of those. --Floquenbeam (talk) 14:47, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that! ...and yes, I read it too! Where's my kitten! --Jobrot (talk) 16:45, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Regarding AN/I[edit]

As far as this: [2]. If the hounding and harassment and poking by the other editor doesn't stop? It would have been nice to get some kind of assurance from him that it would before you closed it out. Because, frankly, considering his past behavior and previous indef for the same kind of thing, I'm not confident that he won't continue in the same vein as he has been for the last six days. -- WV 19:13, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

You're both acting so sub-optimally that I suspect a block in in both your futures. You seem to think because he is acting poorly, you can act as poorly as you wish. He seems to think the same. What neither of your realize is: very few people care about your stupid feud, and those that might have quickly grown sick to death of both of you. --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:16, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
Wait -- what? I called him a prick and I posted on his talk page after he told me not to. That's it. He follows me everywhere, implies I'm mentally ill, has an extensive history of doing the same shit he's been doing to me, was indeffed for it previously, but I am acting poorly? Wow. And thanks for the kind words ("sick to death of...you"). Personally, I'm sick to death of admins letting game-players get away with the crap they do. Like you just did with the one who filed the AN/I. I'm also sick to death of trying to just edit in peace and being hounded by editors like him. But who cares, right? You and other admins are sick to death of me, so I deserve what I get. I may be slow on the uptake when it comes to pragmatics/social cues, but I heard that message loud and clear. -- WV 19:25, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
WL, first, it's customary to ping an editor when you discuss them, particularly when you WP:OTHERPARENT. I'm aware that you rarely afford me that courtesy, and I usually let it slide, mostly because the threads in question often involve you calling me a "prick" [sic] and other invectives and it doesn't help encylcopedia-build for me to inject myself into those tirades. However, I object to your characterization that I am the sole person on WP objecting to your extremely unusual editing patterns. There are currently three active threads (here, here, and here) involving just short of a dozen seasoned editors and admins who have expressed extreme concern about your unusual behavior, particularly your increasingly loud and repetitive claims that you are being "hounded" by a cabal of editors. As an admin just told you in one of those threads: "Winkelvi, either there's a conspiracy out to get you or else you're acting in a way that causes multiple editors to be annoyed. I see no evidence of a conspiracy." BlueSalix (talk) 20:17, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
BlueSalix, per Floq, you both need to just go away for a while. You are also going to extraordinary lengths to prove Winkelvi correct, as no notification is required on someone's talk page. I've seen this by both of you before, although it has been a while. Just avoid him, go away, go create something, whatever, but you are not 100% in the right here, even he was a little bit more wrong yesterday. You need to avoid him the same as I've asked him to avoid you, equally. My threshold is pretty low when it comes to both of you and your constant childlike bickering. It boggles the mind. I won't warn either of you twice, I will just end up blocking you both for extended periods of time, if only to get some peace and quiet. Now everyone....go away, no replies, no explanations, just evaporate..... and that means any more on my talk page as well. Dennis Brown - 20:29, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Jesus Christ you are both obnoxious. Both of you go away. --Floquenbeam (talk) 20:19, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hey Floq, thanks for your help with that issue I posted. Strange situation. You quick assistance was much appreciated! Montanabw(talk) 22:54, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

I *almost* didn't block (a little gunshy lately) but... yeah, that's trolling. Let me know if another account pops up. --Floquenbeam (talk) 22:55, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
It was good that you were careful, the caution, then the block worked well. Seems to have settled down. Montanabw(talk) 02:22, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

I'm not allowed to respond? Rusted AutoParts 19:41, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Look, he got mad (apparently because you were incorrectly reverting), said something dumb, and I removed it. You said something dumb (name one way your post benefits the encyclopedia) and I removed that. Why in the world would you want to push things further, rather than dial things back? --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:44, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
1, because I want to talk to him rather than have someone intervene. 2, I like to goad people. Rusted AutoParts 19:51, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Hmmmm.... --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:54, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
I only goad when they initiate the conflict. Rusted AutoParts 20:02, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
OK, @Rusted AutoParts:, but you're done now. I saw the edit summary on your talk page, that's your last free shot. The next one will be worth a block. This is not the parking lot behind the gym; it's (theoretically) an encyclopedia. --Floquenbeam (talk) 20:05, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

User page vs. user talk page[edit]

Please advise me what you are talking about; "posted to user page." I am dealing with an administrator who refuses to accept my version of the events that led to two totally different pictures being said to be of the same person. I am posting to the user page of the administrator as seems to be the way of Wikipedia Jagtig (talk) 23:39, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Jagtig, what Floq is talking about is this: you're posting comments to people's user pages, but you should be posting them to user talk pages. You actually did it with this very post; you posted it to User:Floquenbeam in this edit, but it should've actually gone to Floquenbeam's user talk page, which is this one right here, at User talk:Floquenbeam. The "User talk:" instead of just "User:" matters. (I've since moved it for you, which is why it's here now.) People won't get notified if you post to their user page; you need to post on their user talk page to be sure they'll read it. That's what Floq meant. Writ Keeper  00:56, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining, WK, and for moving this here. @Jagtig: I have a user page: User:Floquenbeam and a talk page: User talk:Floquenbeam. So do you. User pages are for users to describe themselves a little, talk pages are to communicate with them. You need to be careful which page you post to. --Floquenbeam (talk) 01:06, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
For the sake of accuracy it should be said that I am not an admin. Floquenbeam, Nyttend and Writ Keeper are, but I am not. The edits I've made are ones that any rank-and-file editor could have made, no admin tools were required. BMK (talk) 03:06, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Could you monitor today's discussion at Talk:Alfred de Grazia? I'm afraid there may be a CIR issue here. BMK (talk) 19:29, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

ANI notification[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. JMHamo (talk) 22:35, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, looks like it's already been closed. FWIW I agree with the result. --Floquenbeam (talk) 13:44, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
