A consequence of the Wilmott 15-minute protocol is the death knell for the monolog interior.

Haha. 
I ran into the 15 minute limit today, trying to improve an answer in the Numerical forum. 
Since it's completely arbitrary, I suggest 30 minutes.

Yes. Sometimes I like to go away and make a cup of tea for us, and while doing I can do background processing.

This is also a monologue

Paul, I use a Russell Hobbs to heat water ==> immediately 5 minutes lost...
And it just happened just now because I was making tea again.

Can we get a dispensation?

It's a work of art to boot. 50s style.
And from April 28 it will be powered by 15 solar panels.

what idiot came up with the 15 minute limit? A Big Bang fanatic thinking we are running out of time?

the 15 min rules should be removed or turned into 15 hour rule, alternatively we should make a robot that put out messages every 15 milliseconds.

Different forums like different reference frames. Make one moving at a high speed or put it near a heavy object to dilate time as in special or general relativity theory, respectively, and 15 minutes will become 15 hours :-)
