Perhaps a refrace/argumentation is in demand :-)

The amount of whining players do is positively proportional to how
much you pamper them.=20

Many players whine if they see any kind of bonus in it for them. It
will simply be another way for them to achieve their goals. As an
admin you hold the key to many of the goals that they have concerning
the virtual environment you control. If you do not pamper the players
and let them know that whining will not help them, it will subside.
