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.

I'm not entirely sure how telling me helps you, find the culprit then tell us.

It doesn't "get through". That filter is working exactly as intended, unless you want me to start reporting everyone selling in trade It waits until the website/advertisement is spammed and reports it. I could block off the last line before the report, but then people would think it was reporting innocents, which it isn't.

Yes it's been bad the past couple of days, the latest versions should be killing the latest stuff now.

I've been noticing a new type of gold spam which BadBoy doesn't block yet. First, they spam a lot of item links on multiple lines (anything you can do about this?) and then they link the URL of their website, using symbols to replace certain letters, for example using {circle} as an 'o' in .com.
