StopTheSpam  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.02.20000
by: Malreth [More]
Are you tired of seeing 30 lines of "So-and-so's addon has loaded" each and every time you log into World of Warcraft? Yeah, me too.

No longer do you have to resort to such extreme measures as hand-editing all of your addons, hypnotism, or binge drinking to achieve some peace of mind when logging in to your game. StopTheSpam uses classified Soviet technology to stamp out the endless stream of addon loading messages while still letting system messages and the guild message-of-the-day pass through. It's so amazingly awesome and powerful that it it'll rock your socks and leave you coming back for more! But don't take my word for it, check out these testimonials from actual users:

"StopTheSpam freed me of the loading messages once and for all! -hic-" -- Christina Lewis, Tire Salesperson

"lol teh best mod EVAR!!!@#" -- Steven Strickland, 8th Grade Chemistry Teacher

"What's an addon?" -- Old Man Murphy, Old Man

What are you waiting for? Install StopTheSpam and start enjoying life today!

Change Log:
2.02.20000 - Including the embedded libs is a Good Thing.

2.01.20000 - Rewrote using only the AceHook mixin for clean
unhooking. All other embedded libraries removed. Interface update
for The Burning Crusade beta.

2.00.11200 - Rewritten using Ace2 embedded libraries. AceHook-2.1 is
used to hook the chat frames, AceDebug-2.0 for debug messages, and
AceEvent-2.0 to stop the filter. Filter rules have been moved to
their own file. The rule for BugSack/BugGrabber has been rewritten
and re-enabled.

thanks for posting this. I've been having fatal exception errors, so I've been going through all my mods to make sure it's ALL updated and current. I've been using this mod for years and now it's all updated

Addon can no longer work with Cata

I tried to revive this AddOn today. The core functionality of this AddOn depended on the ability to hook a function called "AddMessage" and then not call the original method in order to "drop" the spam messages.

The hooking still works fine, but Blizzard has made AddMessage "secure" now, meaning it is impossible to not call the original. There are event filter methods (which spam mods like BadBoy use), but most Addons that are "login spamming" just call DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage, which skips event filtering.

So, in short, the functionality that this Addon used to provide is now impossible to do with the current Blizz API's.

** UPDATE **

I stand corrected, it turns out AddMessage is not really secure after all (got some bad information). With some help from the crew at #wowace, I was able to get this mod working again. Now I just have to figure out how to post the updated version here.

0.o

Open the toc file:

Look for
Code:
## Interface: 20000
Change it to
Code:
## Interface: 30300
Just an FYI: The game version in the toc file has no bearing on weather or not the addon works.

Would like to see this updated. I'm tired of the addons showing up.

This addon still works and there is no need to change anything except for the toc.

Edit the toc file to 30000.
