You know what's great about this addon? It was blocking things I had no idea existed until funkydude stated he was no longer blocking them because Blizzard is now blocking them.

it would be great if this worked with the addon "tradeforwarder". Love that addon and this is handy too, however with the choice of watching for pugs and ignoring gold sellers i'm picking ignoring at mo when i'm doing my dailies.

tradeforwarder turns trade into a global channel if you dont know it, just needs another user in the city and you can see trade wherever you are in the game

There's another new annoyance, you might want to look into blocking. On my server the gold spammers are now inviting me to team which is really annoying. They see they are blocked (I guess?) and then just invite to team, and it's really obnoxious. Is there anyway to block this kind of thing? I have the Levels addon but that doesn't seem to handle it (Which I wouldn't expect it would).

Rockets

Hi, for some reason the search is not working for me so I will ask directly, can this block the X-52 Rocket mount spammers? They are the new spam annoyance.

Love your add on, keep it up.

Chat throttling helped, but not enough.

I don't want to report those LFG request, obviously, but simply "filter" them out.

With the introduction of the Blizzard chat throttle added in WoW v4, BadBoy has removed the code for throttling chat and for filtering ASCII art. On top of that I'm hoping the floating spam bots have been fixed so I've removed the sleep emote filter.

BadBoy is now once again a nice and simple gold/hack/phishing/casino blocker & reporter. However I will adapt this addon if people find new ways to get past Blizzard's code.

tralkar, please stop posting spam in my comments.

1. What you're posting is useless to me, either copy and paste the spam or screenshot it.
2. PM ME!

Cataclysm ends trade spam

Just thought I should show you guys this, Cataclysm kills multi-line trade spam, you're allowed 2 lines of public chat every 30 seconds.



In other news, BadBoy v6 a.k.a. "the phishing killer" will soon be ready, featuring improved anti-phishing and anti-goldspam filters.

Reporting helps everyone on the server, so no. This addon is designed to help Blizzard disable hacked accounts, and to server-mute gold spammers by reporting them X amount of times.

On top of that the addon is designed around reporting, the report is needed so you mute that account, if it didn't report you'd see more spam from that specific person without BadBoy blocking it. This follow up spam isn't added to the database as it's not needed, simply because that person should be reported before it.

Is it possible to turn off automatic reporting and also avoid having that manual box pop up? (I want to just block the spam)
