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.

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

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

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.

Apologies, it seems you're correct.

Now I have to try and figure out why the problem is persisting with zero addons enabled at all. :|

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

Thank you for automating the annoying process of reporting spammers.
I smile whenever I see my badboy reporting!

Really a nice addon


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

Those ...ing spammer are so triring with their commercial propaganda.

with you my chat stopped looking like a mailbox.

Thanks

I've noticed the line consolidation isn't working properly..even before 3.3.3

I have some screenshots if you want proof

No odd characters in the text or anything either
