maybe I am missing the point, but aren't all exploits also coding errors.. things the code allows players to do that give a clear advantage to the player that were not intended?

bots in the game that plague maps for rewards without contribution exist because there isn't a conditional in the code that says if they are idle for more than 3 minutes, kick them.

Are those people banned because of a error in the conceptualization of the code that resulted in it not getting implemented (despite the fact that you do know about the problem) or is it because the code also allows them to do it and they are still punished which results in it becoming wrong at that point?

Do conceptualization errors versus coding errors define offenses in which one could be banned or not banned, respectively?
