Cannot possibly be BadBoy, sorry. It is far too simple, and doesn't go anywhere near tooltips.

First off, after moving to Kargath US and seeing my chat windows destroyed by spam in Dalaran, thanks for the life saving addon!

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.

Really a nice addon

I don' know how to express my satisfaction when I see your code automagically reporting the spammers ...

Those spammer are so triring with their commercial propaganda.

with you my chat stopped looking like a mailbox.

I would just like to say a gigantic THANK YOU for all your efforts to keep this mod up2date, Funkydude! I've been using this ever since I found it last year, and I can actually turn my General and Trade channels back on because of you. Anyone who wants to complain about the need to update it frequently obviously isn't paying attention to their chat boxes. As the spammers change their game, you are effectively chasing them down.
/vote Blizzard Hire You... :P

Your efforts are fantastic!

I just grabbed this to save me from the multi-line spam hell that is blackrock. Thanks

While I'm here I would like to request an optional feature of reporting multi-line spammers automatically (like it does with gold spammers). It's quite beyond a joke on some servers as even with the multi-line spam prevention build into this addon it doesn't help much as there's usually a dozen people spamming at the same time making the 5 line buffer rather moot.

I absolutely love this addon! I have been blissfully unaware of gold farmers for quite some time now. But for some reason, the following message made it through:
Hi from SusanExpress.Com. Not all that glitters is gold, so make sure you have some extra change in your pocket. In gratitude to our customers new & old, we continue to provide the lowest price (1k/$7.88) within 30 mins to a few hrs
Although it would be AWESOME for Blizzard to somehow manage to get that site shut down, I'll settle for another filter in BadBoy!

Keep up the good work!

PS - if you can't read the site, it's Susan's.
Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...

Wonderful addon, has made my wow experience a whole lot better! So far has blocked all kinds of spam I got but one type. It went something like this (apologies, I forgot to take a screenshot):

[Spammer]:   >>   random site   <<   buy crap!
[Spammer]:   >>   random site   <<   buy crap!
[Spammer]:   >>   random site   <<   buy crap!
Just a typical gold spammer; he spammed in general, trade, yell, then logged off. However for some reason BadBoy didn't pick it up. Could it be because he left a few spaces at the beginning of his message (i.e. "__>>")?

That probably sounds whiny, so rest assured I really LOVE this addon and if it can block 9/10 of the spam I would normally see every day then that is more than enough for me!

Great addon, however its consolidation feature falls over on busy servers like Blackrock. To give an example I've copied some trade chat just now:

[2] [Drednot]: LF3M 25m ToC,1 Trophy Reserved, 4800 gs minimum, pst with gs/stats/achievement! Just need mage/hunter
[2] [Thanatael]: WTS [Knightbane Carapace] PST!!

The above was posted within about 1 second, BR trade chat often whizzes past so fast you cannot read it, and this kind of spam is the cause! The latest version of BadBoy was active when this occurred.

The fix would be to not just compare the current line with the previous line, rather to compare with say the last 5 lines. This would catch a great deal more of this repeat spamming that's going on when it overlaps with other peoples spam.

Hopefully that's not a big nor difficult change!

[edit] Another one is with multi line macros like the below pest who kept spamming (and quickly got added to my ignore list):

[2] [Darcinth]: ------------------------
[2] [Darcinth]: LFM FLAME LEVI 10
[2] [Darcinth]: PST NO RESERVES
[2] [Darcinth]: ------------------------
[2] [Darcinth]: LFM FLAME LEVI 10
[2] [Darcinth]: PST NO RESERVES
[2] [Darcinth]: ------------------------
etc etc
