Are you saying that each and every kill, no matter the level of the killer, is/was giving you over 6.000 Xp that didn't dwindle at all? And how do you get that every few seconds when you have to run, kill, run, get quest again, repeat?...
As I said before:

You missed the point entirely or didn't read it thoroughly. Let's say that I'm level 50 and you're level 1. I
sit in front of Fleshstick's spawn and just stand there, killing him over and over and over again. You
stand in front of Tina and just keep accepting the mission over and over and over again while I shoot the party guest, making the mission fail every 2-3 seconds. NO running involved whatsoever. In fact, nobody moves at all. You want the lower level character to join the higher level one's game, since Fleshstick will be at the level of the host. The higer the host level, the more XP, obviously. Even if you were L19 and I were L50, you'd still be getting absurd XP points.
In this scenario, I don't get anything out of this power-level glitch, but you level up at a ridiculous rate that makes farming Terramorphus feel like it takes an eternity for that paltry 20K. (6K X 40 = 240K in 2 mins, versus 20K in the same time is a no-brainer.) This isn't something one would do for characters one would actually enjoy playing the game with (Gaige, Axton, Maya) but it's great for Zer0 and Salvadore so that you can get to L30 and get their cheevos quickly without having to actually "play" with them. Once you hit 30, you can just use Zer0's "skill" on the first pack of Bullymongs you see, get the achievement, and be done with him forever. WOOT!
As for Salvadore, you can get 90 seconds of gunzerking easily in Frostburn Canyon if you have the perk that gives you more GZ time for each kill. It's pretty obvious that Gearbox knew who the good characters were and the bad, given the fact that the 3 good ones require you to actually play the game and kill 100 enemies with the skills, while the 2 crap ones only require you to power level and complete a simple task that takes only seconds.
Now, perhaps you can explain how you supposedly go about killing Terramorphus at L18?
