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

Version: v7.1.174
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.

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.

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?
