I had a feeling it might happen because it was so easy, I had no idea it was considered an "exploit"
Without giving it away in case it isn't common knowledge, I found a lot of diamonds because I knew where to look for them. I didn't use any glitch or unnatural means. I had thought exploits were when we abuse a defective game mechanic. The means I deployed doesn't seem much different than knowing what level is best to search. I hope I can be forgiven for not knowing this is considered an exploit. I had expected maybe I would get falsely accused and then I would explain the newly discovered situation to Crafty. In retrospect I should have known the staff would be aware of it and I should have asked about it when my spider senses were tingling. Please pardon me.
