Also, Dan (along with others) are using the loaded term (calling people cheaters) more as a definition of "something I personally disapprove of" instead of the objective definition of utilizing hacks and bugs that general players have no access to... everyone could use a "clicker" for over a year... everyone could run a 15minute combat mission. He and others are throwing in the "exploit" angle to deflect attention away from their own incompetence as designers.

There was no exploiting.
Indeed a good example of exploitation is having a monopoly on an item people cherish and are addicted too then cynically milking them for all they are worth...
