they better not count the criminal records glitch as "cheating". it's not on the same level as modding or using DNS.
If you sat there trading wins with another person abusing a game exploit, then it's cheating.
Not only are you exploiting something not intended for the game but you're also boosting, both considered "cheating" in video games.
boosting isnt cheating. ive never been penalized for boosting trophies or platinum awards have I? it may be an exploit, but it's not on the same par as modding. thye can easily detect who modded and who didn't. i can guarantee that criminal records, a mere glitch, is the last thing on their mind in terms of penalizing players. all they can do is patch glitches, as theyve done already. just as they patch money glitches. not to mention that CR is even older than the modded levels. the modded levels occurred in december and january, whereas CR was more of a november issue. remember when everybody stated that people would be punished for doing the LSC money glitch since it was an "exploit"? didnt happen. rockstar didnt take action until the MODDING came into play. and even that was fine for them until it got out of control.
