You are right, however in a true roleplaying MUD a player would not be
asking questions like that even if there were levels. All you have to do
is limit OOC/game mechanics talk, and perhaps prohibit questions like
the above altogether. Eliminating the finger command or reducing the
information it gives would also help. In short, remove any indications
of how powerful in terms of level someone is.
