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

  • #1065

    I really love this addon, but I don't think it is working in the new global Looking for Group that Blizzard introduced in the latest patch. The "anal" posting is going on like crazy and it's not being blocked out.

    There is this <snip> advertisers spamming like hell.. I added it to exclusions after reporting several times - i don't think exclusion is the way to go though..Europe realms it is.

    Looking into it!

    Расскажите, какой от него толк? Должно быть меньше спама? Я не заметил разницы... Я слепой? =(

  • #1057

    Any chance of getting the duped mount advertisers added to this?

  • #1056

    Hey,

    can you add an option to ignore possible spam in whispers?

    I only want to to monitor: Trade, General and Yell.

    I am afraid of missing some whispers if your addon accidentally blocks it ^^

    Is it possible for you to add an option to block the hearthstone card toy chat message?

    This thing: http://www.wowhead.com/item=118427/autographed-hearthstone-card#comments

    A big thank you to everyone reporting the disconnect issue in both GM tickets and on the Blizz forums, it would seem a blue poster has finally responded on the EU forums: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/13123877183#20

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted step in and share some info to stop this misinformation from spreading. 
    We've known about this for quite some time now. (Thanks btw to everyone who reported it.)
    We're working on a fix and as soon as we're more confident on an ETA we'll share it with you guys. Please keep in mind that these things can take some time though. While this is clearly an important issue, it doesn't happen every time you report someone, and for the good of the game, we have to prioritize fixes depending on their urgency or importance.

    I encourage everyone to continue making GM reports and posts to increase the "sense of urgency" they need to fix this bug.

  • #1052

    Is there any reason you won't let this addon work for other channels, like guild? I love my guild but I don't have the authority to stop people from using shitty gratz addons or similar, and it'd be really nice to filter it out instead of just passive aggressively raging at the spam.

    i am indeed getting disconnected everytime i report with this addon, please fix sooon

    As explained earlier this is a Blizzard bug not in my control. I suggest people experiencing this open GM tickets and explain in the ticket that they get disconnected randomly when they try to report someone (don't mention this addon and state that "it happens even with no addons").

    Just have an option to 'disable reports' like the ElvUIChatTweaks does.

    It already has that option, but that isn't a solution.

    Is this addon cause disconnects for anyone else? When I use the pop up feature I get disconnected after 2 - 3 reports
