SmartAddonBlocker
Version: 4.0a
by: Aeldra [More]
SmartAddonBlocker
Created by Aeldra (EU-Proudmoore)

Automaticly ignore players temporary which use spam-addons.

SmartAddonBlocker is only active in raid by default. It tries to detect raid bosses and automaticly activates itself if the combat starts.
After combat it automaticly deactivates itself and removes the players of the ignore list.

Beware! This addon will put 50-80% of your raid on ignore temporary.
But it is the only way to block these addon spam messages by the server, before they reach your client and you get disconnected.

Thanks to Belae of Khaz'goroth-US for Ignore Addon Spam.

Yes, it seems blizzard will fix the major addon spam.
We will see if SAB is still needed or what new features will come ^^

SAB in 4.1

So with this coming down the pipe:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2228413591

what will become of SAB? The easy answer is "it won't be needed", but I can imagine scenarios where a player would still want to ignore high-traffic addons during (say) a boss fight, but allow those addons to receive data at other times. Thoughts, anyone?

You have misunderstood the point of this addon. That's not the kind of "spam" that SAB is designed to block.

The list of ignored players should be saved and restored across logins, and if the player is not in combat when logging in, then they should be unignored. Currently if the player gets disconnected during combat, the ignored people will permanently stay ignored unless the player happens to remember to unignore them all, by hand.

If so, you can use ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter to filter the messages instead of ignoring people completely.
No DBM spam gets not ignored.
Ignore the players is the only way to block addon spam messages by the server. In all other cases the spam will still sent to your client.

Thanks for the info! Not nice of this addon, but I found a workround, by hooking the orginal functions at startup. Seems to work and implemented in the next version.
