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

Only the most obvious ones will get reported, the rest you should do manually. This is because there is no consistency between various adverts to make viable filters that don't register innocents.

Some examples of spam I still see

Say They Talk Like
This In A Macro
And Post It To Trade
So It's All 1 Big Block
Can This Be Filtered
In It's Entirety


I also saw a person do this in Icecrown Citadel /1 General Chat

-Edit..Apparently I can't make the words wrap..but I think you get the idea..

v5.0.1.0 - *Temporarily* filter the (non-reported) sleep emote spam from non-friends until Blizzard fix the floating bots, hopefully soon... as I dislike having this kind of thing in BadBoy.

Heya funkydude. Well, we've already established that your mod is awesome and indispensable and all, but there's one type of spam that it just won't block. Emotes.

On my server, gold spammers seemed to have moved on from the traditional trade/yell/LFG spam (or I simply just don't see them anymore thanks to you ) and now they write their website name with sleeping characters on the ground. When they do that, my chat gets spammed with:

Xyz falls asleep.
Abc falls asleep.
Klm falls asleep.
And I'm talking hundreds of these messages, in about 1-2 seconds. Is there any way BadBoy could filter emote spam as well?

Wow, this is one ambitious update, funkydude. It also makes me happy.

Really curious how you managed to block guild ads, though...

However, I am noticing that it seems to remove the race text from my ingame tooltips, and also from any items such as the ToC crafted items, the "available" races line is just a selection of commas.

Code:

You moved to a different server and you forgot to update all your saved variables onto the new server folder.

And to the author of this amazing addon, Thank you.

Could you describe your issue in a little more detail? Are you talking about the "Complaint Registered" message? That automatically happens when someone is reported.

I guess nothing can be done by badboy for this, but i'm gonna mention it anyway.

There's some (honestly cool) advertising going on outside the AH on Ravencrest-EU in the mornings.

Instead of lining up corpses to form an URL to some site they line up sleeping lvl1 trolls that shift around in the air to make the URL.

First they're lying down to form the URL, then they shift to standing up and forming it a small distance away but vertically.

It looks pretty cool but it's annoying to get spammed by 20+ <name> falls asleep.
And i'm a tad too lazy to report 20+ lvl1 trolls.

Perhaps some toggle to filter out the /sleep?

Just thought i'd let you know.

Sometimes the gold advertisers like to draw with symbols to advertise their gold, v4.3 attempts to combat this by filtering this art, can be turned off, see config for details.
