Complaining: Whoring get usage counts

Eh. I've heard it a lot. It's close to, but not exactly like spamming. Spamming is just using one thing repeatedly in as quick succession as you can. Whoring is using one thing a lot.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.
It seems like the related pages have similar problems. Is it really necessary to have more than one page that can be summarized as "Players in a competitive environment will use the best options available"?
Belief or disbelief rests with you.

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

[up]So, do we cut the current examples or not? AFAIK, Fan Speak definitions don't get examples and the Waggle way seems to be the one to go.

I'd be in favor of cutting examples... they tend to get complaint-filled. The only possible exception I can think of would be to cite In-Universe discussion about it (like that fanvid of Dracula from Castlevania waking up and getting frustrated with Richter Belmont using Hydro Storm repeatedly).
Reminder: Offscreen Villainy does not count towards Complete Monster.

Fanspeak definitions don't get examples.

[up]And I've removed the examples and put a note on the discussion page.

Nice work.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Note: These options aren't mutually exclusive - if the trope is renamed or merged, Whoring can still become a Fan Speak definition page with the trope being elsewhere.
