If you are able to enter a session and you start to notice anything unusual such as:
Extreme lag, players are invisible, horses do not respond when you whistle, npcs laying on the ground, no npcs at all, players replaying hideouts/ gaining points faster than usual...

You can quickly avoid this problem by leaving multiplayer and starting a private session through single player menu, this skips all public sessions and sends you to your own bug-free session where you can invite your friends but make sure they do not join from a public, they must leave multiplayer first or else it will infect your session with these issues.

NEVER change sessions, not even to poker or gang matches, this will bring the issues with you even if you don't notice it at first, it duplicates the npcs on the ground including the npcs that are invisible from people shooting them with the explosive rifle. The more npcs that duplicate, the worse it will get. You may even be stuck in the loading screen for a very long time. If you notice the loading taking too long, leave the game. There is no point trying to play in a broken session if you want it to be fixed. You are actually making it worse just by being in a session because all it takes is 1 person to keep the session open and 1 person to join and leave to the next to cause it to spread.

If you catch anyone abusing the xp glitches, you may simply record and report them. They will be banned faster than the modders who created this problem.

It also helps to send messages to the players you encountered in a broken session and tell them what is happening and how to prevent it. Or a faster way is to send them this link: http://fixreddead.wikia.com/wiki/FIXRedDead_Wiki   which explains everything.

Do not vote to kick anybody or it will force them into a session that could be playable for others. Always remember, every time you change sessions you are worsening the problem whether you are cheating or not, all it takes is to be in one for 1 second to be infected.

Spread the word to as many people as possible, once the community knows what to do, you can control the quality of the game. Keep in mind some players want the game to be broken just so they can level up only to realize they will have nothing to do once finished and the game is still broken... All abusers will be punished.

The only way for this problem to stop permanently is if Rockstar patches the 'components.xml' file within the data of the game itself. Modders who are able to open the game can simply change 1 value to be able to break the game and hundreds of them have this modded file that was made available 3 years ago by ATK Pirate after watching a video of GLITCHED MATRIX using it in Undead Overrun during his test run. It was only found out later by psn modders that this mod is the most dangerous mod ever created. Its the key to introducing invincible npcs into freeroam and spreading like a virus with a duplication glitch that existed since the game was first released.

If the problems are too much for you, always take some time away from RDR to play another game, it is not worth your time and money to be wasting on a game that never gets patched correctly. But if you want it to be fixed, follow the steps above and keep the community well informed. Blaming people hasn't done anything in the past 4 years so lets try something new for a change.

Online should have been fixed.
How the heck can the game still be purchased new and online doesn't work ?

Well yesterday afternoon I tried Free Roam Normal and Free Roam Friendly, and in both cases although there were people in the room, you couldn't see anyone.
And Co Op is screwed still as well.
