    Hi,

    I'm not sure what is up, but I am currently having issues with reporting spam.  Sometimes, when I click on the "click to report spam" line in chat, nothing happens.  I suppose this is better than the hit or miss chance of getting disconnected that used to happen... and it does seem that it is the spam that would disconnect me if I reported it that I am now unable to report at all.

    Clicking on spam and nothing happening means the ability to report that message has expired. We use the Blizzard API to check if we're allowed to report something, which gives us an arbitrary time limit based on who knows what. Blizzard seem to be trying their hardest to stop people reporting spam.

    I should also reference this thread again and encourage people to continue bumping it: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/13123877183#20

    Thanks to Bad Boy I was banned today for advertising goods in trade channel because I used raid icons in my message.  Auto-reporting "spam" without requiring to see the message shouldn't be allowed.

    • BadBoy cannot report yourself if that's what you're suggesting.
    • If you're suggesting other badboy users reported you, prove it by typing the message you were spamming so I can verify it.
    • You cannot be reported for just raid icons.
    • Reports are manually inspected by GMs, which is why gold spam takes so damn long to get cleaned up. It doesn't matter if you get reported, the GM still needs to decide if what you posted is a bannable offense. Assuming you are telling the truth, it clearly was an offense.
    • I assume you mean suspended, not banned. Unless you were posting links to a dodgy website, you're not going to get banned for chat spam, you'll get a minor suspension.
    • Showing the spam to the user is counter intuituve for an addon designed to block it.

    There are these guys on my server who like to spam ESESESESESE in full caps in trade chat, but filling an entire chat message with it. it's really annoying, because it basically clears the chat window, but they aren't blocked by any of the BadBoy addons I've installed. I also cannot add them to CCleaner plugin because I have no idea how long that their message is.

    They are basically the only ones I bother reporting for spamming because reporting anything that's actual spam means I get disconnected for spamming the report functionality.

    Could you look into this to see if there's a way to filter these from chat?

    You don't need to add the full message to _CCleaner, just words that are contained in the message. So adding "eseses" would work, just make sure it's long enough to not risk filtering the name of an item or such.

    It doesn't scan raid chat and specifically excludes people in your raid from being scanned in SAY/WHISPER, so no, it isn't. Your issue is not with this addon.

    Figured put why i kept seeing spam block text in the middle of the raids its because of general chat :/

  • #1072

    Can you also add tradeforwarder to the channel plz?  

    Cheers

    Hey,

    There are spammers that changed their status to <busy> so they cannot be blocked automatically. 

    Can you fix that plz?

    Changing their status doesn't affect this addon at all.

    Could you allow us to add things like punctuation to the block list, so we can add certain websites to it for example.
