When you're structuring your business model around an unintended use of a game function, that's an exploit.

Okay. So, what we as pirates must do is to follow exactly what the Developers have paved for us.

<Scenario>

- Developer driving a steamroller to pave the road ahead.
- Group of pirates walking behind the steamroller.
- One pirate says, "Hey look! There's a short cut!" and takes it.
- Developer sees, angered, shoots that pirate and restricts access to that shortcut.
- Developer find a better way to control it's player base, and chains each and every one pirate onto the Steamroller, so they'd follow the intended use of the "Game Function".

</Scenario>

The amount of creativity that the developers want us pirates to develop is utterly overwhelming. Every time an exploit* comes up, it must be quashed with immediate effect.

* = includes 'unintended' use of a game-function.
