Sympathetic, but with firm standards

Do you think these two philosophies on begging for grades are reasonable?

I'm not sure whether I want to go so far as to add more clauses to my syllabus, but maybe when I go over the syllabus at the beginning of the semester I should clarify that there won't be any extra credit. I mean, I already feel like I've been overly generous when it comes to every single assignment type other than exams. And on exams, yes, I'm being pretty darned rigorous, but I don't think I'm setting an impossible standard.

I can appreciate how colleagues would become unsympathetic after enough rounds of begging. But on the other hand, we now provide almost real-time feedback on grades, so students don't have a lot of excuses when waiting until the end of the semester.
