StopAddonMessage

Version: 1.7.0
by: Cyprias [More]

Check StopAddonMessage on Curse.com for the latest version.


StopAddonMessage (SAM) is a firewall that lets you prevent addons from sending and receiving hidden messages.

* Don't want others knowing you're running a certain addon?
* Worried about what addons are broadcasting?
* Want to silence a spamming addon?
* Receiving You are not in a raid spam in battlegrounds/arenas?
* Receiving You are not in a guild spam?

SAM can help.

FAQ:
Q) How does SAM block outgoing messages?
A) SAM hooks SendAddonMessage() and blocks messages from being sent out.
Q) How does SAM block incoming messages?
A) SAM hooks frame's receiving CHAT_MSG_ADDON and blocks them from receiving the event.
Q) Can SAM block visible addon messages like Ding!, auto congratulations and Wintertime?
A) No. SAM deals only with the hidden messages.
Q) Can SAM stop addons from printing text to the chat box?
A) No.
Q) Can SAM stop You are not in a raid from spamming me in battlegrounds?
A) Yes. SAM will block the outgoing message and tell you which addon is causing it.
Q) Can SAM stop You are not in a guild from spamming me too?
A) Yes. And SAM will tell you which addon or prefix is causing that message to appear.
Q) Can I block messages from a specific person?
A) Yes. Enter their name into the names list and their incoming and outgoing messages will be blocked.
Q) Can SAM block other's addons from spamming me?
A) No. SAM can block your addons from receiving/processing the spam, sure.
Q) Can other's addons spamming me cause me to disconnect?
A) No. Incoming communications will not cause you to DC. If a poorly written addon keeps replying to spam then that could cause flood disconnection.
Q) Should I block inbound messages for addons that I'm not running?
A) No. Only block inbound messages for addons you are running. Otherwise you're not blocking the message from reaching anything.
Q) Why is Add incoming prefixes disabled by default?
A) There's no benefit in blocking messages if you're not also running the addon that receives them. But if you want them in the list, you have the option.
Q) Why is IgnoreMore a optional dependency?
A) IgnoreMore blocks regular chat, but not addon communications. SAM will block addon comm from people you're ignoring using IgnoreMore.

I can't forcibly duplicate it as it's random and only shows up when I'm logging out.
I get the same error with no addons installed, so I don't worry about it

It would print the message. It's for people who are not in a guild, but have a poorly written addon that's sending messages to guild channel.

A) Yes. And SAM will tell you which addon or prefix is causing that message to appear.
Since I only see this message when I am logging out.. how does the addon tell me what addon is causing the message?
