so i'm not sure if you've started to try and crack down on this new thing, i've seen lots of spam bots for "selling [insert Ulduar BoE epix] whisper for info" and if you whisper it gives you a website or whatnot and the website I'm pretty sure basically is just a keylogger so they can raid your guild bank and sell all your ulduar epix also...and I thought susan was a pain in the ass...

Understandable, unfortunately there is currently no easy way to do this short of performing a Who lookup on every single person in trade which would slow things down considerably. I've requested Blizzard to add an API for me to instantly get player level of people that chat and I'm awaiting a reply.

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!

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

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.

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

Still the best anti-spam chat addon that you can get, SpamSentry is another one that does the job that blizzard fails to do, wow can I say that in here? LOL

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!

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.
