Developers of online games also need some leeway when players start behaving in ways not sufficiently anticipated. All the min/maxers in CoH, for example.

ISTM, the only really broken part of Elite is the background simulation (BGS). Some of this is caused by bored griefers exploiting loopholes in the BGS, some by deliberate interference from haxxors.
