Poll: Scouting Tools and Editors - Is it Really Cheating?

The likes of FMSE and Genie Scout are excellent tools for our use; however there is always the debate if it is cheating... is it?

What Do You Think is Cheating? (60 votes)
For me, I sometimes download tactics and often refer player lists (free agents, potential wonderkids). I have not used Genie Scout before but may do in the future.

For me, the real cheating is editing data, reloading, adding managers and exploiting the match engine.

I must confess that in fm19 I edited my latest career and it was the most fun save I have had in a long time. I swapped Cumbernauld Colts from low level leagues in Scotland (which is unplayable) with Clyde FC in Scottish League 2 so I could manage them. I have really enjoyed this challenge. I didn't edit anything about the club (apart from move them to the lowest playable league) so its been really tough but very fun.
