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

Version: v7.3.66
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.

Can you break it down for us? Does this mean this addon is now worthless? Or will it still report the spam and block it from our account?

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.

But it's all cool now.

I've tried several times in the past and failed to do so (infact the non-working code is still in badboy commented out) simply because the API just doesn't seem to be designed to allow you to easily parse all invites and purge them at a glance. Blizzard could easily fix this by removing all calendar invites when a character is deleted, they could also offer improved API to make mass purging easier.

An easy check could be that the creator is Unknown (as spammers delete the character asap)

First off, I love this addon! The last couple versions, though, I've been getting popups that tell me what is being blocked.

Example:
Badboy_REPORT: GoldSellingScum,it has a large stock,fast speed$16.16/10000gold(use coupon:lucky11 get 5% discount) CHANNEL

It's awesome that further spamming is being blocked, and I want to have them reported, but I don't want to see this. However, the two check-able options provided don't seem to shut this off.

Am I missing something or is this just the way it is now? I remember an old version just giving me a short statement along the lines of "Spammer Reported".
