What do you mean well done? You're using BadBoy v8, not the latest v9 version. v8 doesn't work on patch 4.3.4, I suggest you update.

edit: You're also using the old version of BadBoy_CCleaner, you've clearly not updated your addons for several weeks. I suggest you practice doing so before reporting errors.

That's really the only reason the next version will have an option to hide it, with a massive block of text asking you not to do so

Imho you shouldn't allow hiding the message. It is not that intrusive.
I click it every single time to report those @#$!!**@#$

Why don't I "blackhole" it? See the 2nd sentence in my rant a few posts down. BadBoy was never designed with the intention of hiding spam, the reason I made it 4 years ago was to get it reported, clean up the realms and get the hacked accounts being used to spam shut down asap.

Turning a blind eye (a.k.a. hiding the spam) helps absolutely no one at all. Now I'm currently faced with the "moral" decision whether or not I should allow the message to be hidden.

As to your issue with character related spam, recent versions have made a few strides in improving protection against it, but if it really is coming up as question marks, it sounds more to me like Chinese symbols rather than the usual character replacement. Chinese gold spam isn't that uncommon, I believe you'll have to use a compatible font to read it though (and preferably, report it to me to fix it) :/

Afterall, if we're successfully blocking the spam client-side, why do we need to report it to Blizz? Out-of-sight, out-of-mind.

On a side note, gold sellers (and character services) are slipping through the filters by typing in English using foreign character sets. I can't copy and paste it but a lot of the time it looks like a series of questions marks overlapping each other before and after a description of what they're selling. Curious if anyone has seen this and if it's un-blockable. A lot of the time it's just garbage (i.e. like they're failing in there advertising and don't know it) and sometimes it is halfway legible.

It's a shame Blizz made this move, I will make a suggestion to bring the auto report feature back.

Thank you for your support of this addon, wouldn't be able to survive trade channel without it.

It will block the spam, but it won't report it. BadBoy will add a message to your chat with a link for you to click to report the player. I strongly encourage everyone to do so. I know it's annoying, but that's what Blizzard likes to do

Today is BadBoy's 4th birthday! To celebrate, Blizzard has removed the ability for addons to automatically report spam in patch 4.3.4! As if it wasn't enough that Blizzard haven't added any of my API requests to make spam filtering easier, they've gone out of their way to make it even harder... It's as if they don't appreciate the thousands of hacked accounts this addon has helped them shut down and stop spamming their realms.

When you report someone, you can no longer see any chat from them. However, when many people report someone, they are placed on a "global mute". Which means they can no longer spam the server, this benefits people that aren't using BadBoy as well, unfortunately, this will no longer be the case.

If you're as shocked and suprised by this move as I am, and you have a US account, I ask you to take to the forums and complain to Blizzard about this, unfortunately, I don't have a US account to do that (EU).

The good old addon "SpamSentry" which BadBoy was originally (sort-of) based on used to print a message in chat and ask you to report the player, I've decided to take this step also. I really hope it's not too intrusive to you all, and I beg of you to please click the report link to report the spammers. The more people that do it, the higher the chance the spammer will be globally muted.

Many thanks to everyone that has helped reporting spam to me over the past 4 years, and again, I hope this message isn't too intrusive!

v8 released:
-Possibly fixed an issue for some users where silent mode didn't work.
-Re-code the raid icon handling and symbol handling to strengthen BadBoy against spam that uses raid icon & symbol separation.
-Print a chat message if an addon is breaking critical chat data that BadBoy needs, thus breaking BadBoy, and showing an error.
-Fix a minor display issue for manual report users.
-Improve Russian & French filters.
-Remove/cleanup lots of old rules.
