Not what I said at all, and in fact I was interpreting "make a fuss" as
making any positive action to express their displeasure with the situation.

The people who matter here the most are those that are hard-working,
> productive, helpful.

If that's the axis you want to measure based on, sure, that's true, although
I'd say that anyone who is productive matters, and "mattering more" doesn't
have much meaning.
