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

Version: v7.3.64
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.

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.

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):

Code:
[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!!
[2] [Drednot]: LF3M 25m ToC,1 Trophy Reserved, 4800 gs minimum, pst with gs/stats/achievement! Just need mage/hunter
[2] [Xeroh]: Anyone want to random heroic Farm? PST!
[2] [Whistlegloom]: LF 2500+XP Warrior for 3v3. PST
[2] [Xeroh]: Anyone want to random heroic Farm? PST!
[2] [Whistlegloom]: LF 2500+XP Warrior for 3v3. 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

v4 release

v4 release:
+ Added a very simple options screen (1kb) for user friendliness
+ New multi-to-single line spam consolidation feature (see addon description for example)
+ URL blacklist completely erased, now depends solely on generic triggers to catch current and new spam.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

Just wanted to thank you for your diligent work with this addon. Update as much as you want; it makes WoW safer and less annoying for your faithful downloaders!

I can't express how much I appreciate your hard work. Anyone that complains about the need to install your frequent updates (given the ever changing face of goldselling/account hacking) is a fool. Your addon is a godsend.

Now, if only you could find a way to make the addon hide dead level one characters that are positioned to spell out gold selling websites in major cities! lol

Sorry in advance as there may be an increase in new BadBoy releases lately to try combat the latest ingame phishing scams. I highly recommend the use of an updater like Minion/CurseClient to keep easily updated!
