Cue Nelson Muntz:
I'm amazed even you people on the dev team don't know what exploit means. You just said it isn't an exploit, then said it's not what the dev team intended after that. The definition of exploit means using existing game mechanics to do something the devs did not intend! Near synonym: loophole.
What you mean to say is that it's an exploit but not a cheat.
A loophole is a legitimate un-intended consequence. This is the perfect word for what happened.
I'm also glad I at least got a few levels out of it last night. I guess we can do it tonight as well. Better something then nothing.
