Oh exploiting isn't cheating? Is that why they ban players in certain games for it? Cheating destroys the cheaters experience in a singleplayer game, and many people's experiences in a multiplayer game.
I don't care what you do in your game. But you are on the forums raving like a madman/woman claiming to know everything there is to know about cheating. Lots of people read these forums, and lots of people post on them. Is there a problem with me responding to a post on a forum that I felt I could offer insight into? If you didn't want people replying you shouldn't of posted in the first place. If you think no one should care, then why are you going through so much trouble to drill the same points into our heads?
You wanna justify the way you play go ahead. But not everyone is going to agree with you, infact I don't think anyone is going to agree with your point- that you can't cheat in a single player game, but I could be wrong.
Don't twist my words. I am NOT talking about someone changing the rules when other humans are involved. If I have ever said that, quote me. I am talking about single player games.
Exploits are taking advantage of the rules as the are presented. If that causes an issue, then it is up to the person/people making the rules to change them. At one point in time, dunking the basketball was considered cheating, when in fact it was taking advantage of the rules as they were presented.
When did I claim to know everything about cheating? Quote the post. I take issue with a certain poster who seems to take every opportunity to call someone a cheater who doesn't play the way he feels is correct. He did so in this thread. Being called a cheater is an insult; using the autosave is NOT cheating. Restarting a single player game where no one else is taken advantage of is NOT cheating.
Create all the strawmen you want (no one is raving like a mad man/woman-I am defending my point. If that is raving, I hope you never have to watch someone defend a thesis or provide support for their opinion in real life), playing a single player game the way I wish to, which takes advantage of no one else is NOT cheating.
In edit-Nothing I have posted was directed towards you Foxd1e. I would never tell anyone that they cannot or should not post, to be quiet, to go away, etc. If you feel that I directed something negative towards you, I apologize. I have no issue with you. I do not agree with your point, but I have no issue with you speaking your mind and I am glad that you are doing so. I do take umbrage with one particular poster, because I feel he insults people, but I have not and I will not ever tell him or anyone that they shouldn't express themselves.
So once again Foxd1e, if you feel I have unfairly singled you out, I apologize because that was not my intent at all.
