BadBoy: Spam Blocker & Reporter  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v7.1.276
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.

But is it still possible to completely hide report links?

The latest BadBoy release removes the 8 second block on reporting spam. This was implemented to prevent a disconnection bug which I believe Blizzard may have finally fixed.

To give this proper testing, I've temporarily disabled the option to hide the spam report links to try and get people to report spam. Please let me know if you see any disconnection issues.

v11.6 - Include the LibChatAnims library to prevent BadBoy blocking talent changes for some users. Anti-spam update.

As of v11 BadBoy automatically blocks & reports Battle.net/realid invites from gold spammers (gold spam in the invite message). As Blizzard hasn't "protected" this function it can be done automatically by BadBoy.
