Does that include players who complain when you fix a bug that they were benefitting from

Here's another good one...players who complain when you won't reward them for reporting bugs:
XXX tells you, 'For some primal I'll test all your concepts and find all the errors for you :p.'
You reply to XXX, ':P.'
XXX replies, 'How about it? :)'
You reply to XXX, 'Wouldn't be fair on all the other people who had helped find bugs for no reward.'
XXX replies, 'But I'm going to devote my time to actually find them for you, not just stumble across them by chance.'
You reply to XXX, 'Others have done the same, and while I appreciate the gesture I'm not sure that I should set such a precedent without talking with the rest of the gw2 team first.'
XXX replies, 'Come on :p.'
You reply to XXX, 'Sorry.'
XXX replies, 'In the time I spend testing your concepts I could've made 5k primal. So it's not really a reward.'
XXX replies, 'It'd be more of a compensation for my time.'
You reply to XXX, 'Sorry.'
XXX replies, 'Bah, you're ridiculous.'
You reply to XXX, 'I'm trying to be fair.'
XXX replies, 'Fine, let the newbies get *CENSORED*ed over and you find them that way. Like I was screwed.'
XXX replies, 'Fair? Pshhh...'
XXX replies, 'No wonder YYY says you're a horrible imp.'
XXX replies, 'He atleast rewarded his players for finding bugs etc, to show appreciation.'
XXX tells you, 'Such a shame though. I've found about 15 typos, and 5 errors, plus 2 bugs. But I'ma keep them to myself if I don't get *CENSORED* for them.'
You reply to XXX, 'And as I said, I will talk to the rest of the team about it, but once I start doing that it sets a precedent. Most of the players are more than happy just to make the game better.'
XXX replies, 'Then most of the players would have no problem for you rewarding someone for testing for you.'
XXX replies, 'They'd get what they want. The mud improving, but ya w/e.'
You reply to XXX, 'Then they would ALL want it - and demand increasing benefits for doing so.'
XXX replies, 'Then how about we both drop it? And I will continue to exploit your faulty bug, and you can just have one of those players find it and the other errors for ya, for free. K?'
You reply to XXX, 'I respond even less well to blackmail than I do to bribery.'
XXX replies, 'I'm not trying to blackmail or bribe you.'
XXX replies, 'All I asked for was a primal reward if I took my time out from primal harvesting, to help you with your faulty ass concepts.'
You reply to XXX, 'Further, I won't bother doing you any favours either - it'd have been easier for me to change the concept than the talent, so I think I'll just change it back.'
XXX replies, 'You're not doing me any favors KaVir, I was trying to help you. But I wanted a frigging compensation for the time it would take me.'
XXX replies, 'That's all I asked you for.'
XXX replies, 'Not even a full frigging compensation, just one in general.'
XXX replies, 'But I can see how you are.'
XXX replies, 'That's cool though.'
You reply to XXX, 'And I already explained to you that such an act would set a precedent.'
XXX replies, 'Then you don't have to even make it public that you did such.'
XXX replies, 'Then it wouldn't set a precedent.'
You reply to XXX, 'Then it would set rumours of cheating - something I strive hard to avoid.'
XXX replies, 'Okay, whatever KaVir.'
XXX replies, 'Whatever excuse you want to come up with. Doesn't bother me.'
XXX replies, 'How badly concepts are *CENSORED*ed up doesn't bother me.'
XXX replies, 'Even though, I tested every concept already, and they're all *CENSORED*ed in one way or another.'
You reply to XXX, 'Then I'll go over them and double check them.'
XXX replies, 'You do that, and I'll harvest primal.'
You reply to XXX, 'Sure, won't take me more than a few minutes.'
XXX replies, 'Go *CENSORED*ing do it then and quit telling me about it.'
XXX replies, 'When you get done with that, you can figure out this bug that lets me gain double primal, too.'
You reply to XXX, 'No, I think I'll just strip half of it from your pfile.'
XXX replies, 'Not really....cause it'd be your fault that it's happened.'
XXX replies, 'And I only did it once, so far.'
XXX replies, 'See what I mean....you are just a ridiculous imp.'
