Intent is subjective and irrelevant in determine whether something is legal.
Hopefully you are not a lawyer with that statement.  :)

+1

by definition, every crime has an "actus reus" (bad act) and a "mens rea" (bad state of mind).

For those curious, the mens rea of murder is "malice aforethought"

Why don't they have an emergency break? :D

Or just an intercom to the cockpit.

If the CC doesn't prohibit it then why is it my fault for earning it? What if I didn't even intend to earn the points?  The fault lies solely with issuer of the points.
This is why the Nordstrom bros story is so shocking. All they did was make online orders through a portal. Nordstrom cancelled them and paid out the cashback site. That the brothers got jail time for that, when all they actually did was submit online orders, is very surprising.
I'm no expert but I'd like to believe that a better lawyer could've won that case.

Hard to argue that ordering $23 Million in merchandise, while creating new usernames, was an innocent mistake.

I always understood the issue to be that htey were never entitled to the CB for returned items and exploited the fact that the CB went through anyhow.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
