BadBoy: Spam Blocker & Reporter  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v7.1.87
by: funkydude [More]

Please support me in the daily fight against spam on Patreon!

BadBoy is open source and development is done on GitHub. You can contribute code, localization, and report issues or spam there: https://github.com/funkydude/BadBoy

Why so many updates?
BadBoy has become popular, spammers have taken notice. As soon as new updates come out, spammers attempt to get around the new filters. People will either complain about missing spam or too many updates, it's not a situation where I can make both sets of people happy. I highly recommend using the WoWI Minion addon updater.

BadBoy Highlights:

  • Blocking & reporting spam: gold, hack, phishing, account trading, runescape gold trading, casino, illegal item selling, etc...
  • Spam is removed from: LFG tool, Chat, Chat bubbles.
  • A 20 line chat buffer/throttle to prevent people spamming the same message one after another.
  • Configuration screen by typing /badboy

The following are not scanned and cannot be reported/blocked by this addon: Friends, Real ID friends, Guild, Party, Raid, GM's.
The following channels are monitored: Trade, General, Yell, Whispers.

Please post missed spam on GitHub.

No, it's too small to need something like that.

That would be like an AV company allowing you to add your own viruses, it would only benefit you instead of everyone. Report them and you benefit everyone.

Won't ever be in the main addon, it's a possibility for an external badboy addon.

I'm planning on BadBoy_Levels and BadBoy_Spam (non reported general crap) when I get the time. Although it might be a while. If you're interested in writing it feel free to PM me for code discussion/help. I've opened up optional files in this project for anyone wanting to add similar filtering addons.

Automatic block whispers incoming by any level 1 warrior.

Those are the "polite" gold sellers that talks calmly and asks you if you want to buy gold/leveling services.

Otherwise, great addon, been using it since it came out

No problem, glad to hear you fixed it!

Re: problem with whispers

merneith, BadBoy did not try to report your friend, it tried to report a real spammer, but that whisper was filtered, but didn't get reported because of a conflicting addon. This is completely not BadBoy's fault, but another addon for improperly messing with chat filters. I suggest you start disabling chat addons, starting with the two mentioned below. I'd start with SpamMeNot, I also heard from friends that WIM was the cause of their problem.

Prat and SpamMeNot are involved too, somehow. Thanks in advance for you advice!

problem with whispers

Twice now I've received innocent whispers in game and somehow badboy treats them like spammers. Just the latest, I got a flimsy gnome mask in trick or treat and someone whispered me to say just say congrats. Badboy reported them and even though I got the text of the whisper, the name was blank so I couldn't reply.

Here's what Bugsack had to say about it:

It filters all gold/hack spam.

Had a chat mod that blocked all this but is no longer being developed - looking around hoping there is a stand-alone spam mod that does this.
