Removes spam and irrelevant chatter from Trade chat.
Messages in Trade chat are blocked unless they contain at least one whitelisted word and do not contain any blacklisted words. The blacklist (but not the whitelist) is also applied to General and other public server channels. Custom channels and non-numbered chat are not affected.
Type "/tcc" for options. If you are offended by profanity, don't look at the word lists.
Compatible with all locales. Currently works very well in English, acceptably well in German, and probably not very well in other languages. Feel free to submit keyword suggestions.
Post a ticket or comment. If you are reporting a bug, please include directions I can follow to reproduce the bug, whether it still happens when all other addons are disabled, and the exact text of the related error message (if any) from Bugger/BugSack/Swatter.
I wrote this for myself mainly to replace BadBoy, with the goal of it requiring very little setup or maintenance, and very little effort to use. Reporting spammers, even with BadBoy, is a huge amount of work -- and on a busy server during peak hours, there are literally just too many spammers to report, since spam reporting is throttled -- and in my experience also pointless, since you can see same people spamming the same messages over and over for months on end without ever getting banned. Reporting also means that BadBoy has to be much more conservative in flagging messages as spam, and that it needs to be constantly updated to match new wordings in spam messages.
By contrast, this addon just hides messages without reporting anything, so it can be much more aggressive in its filtering. It also filters Trade chat more heavily, while still blocking spam and unwanted messages in all public channels.
