Like others have said, I personally have no problems with "whining" - and I have even got used to hourly traffic reports. I'd rather people "info dump" than not contribute at all. I have a good handle on what's happening just by WHO is making the most noise. But I contribute less, both because there is less pay-back, and because the warm glow you get from helping people is rather spoilt when personal insults start being chucked around.
Those who are info dumping traffic reports are giving good analysis or at least more data to analyse (there may be some whining if those traffic reports are showing a negative increase since last month - but I'd rather have that than no information.)
