In MMPORGs like MUDs, it refers to the tactic of an administrator to make something desirable or useful less so. While usually done with the noble intent to equalize an unbalancing element, it invariably evokes cries of anger and bitterness from the playerbase. Thus, it used as a term of derision.

The opposite of "wimping" is "buffing."
