Since the disconnect issue seems to be resolved, we now throttle the spam report link to only show once every 60 seconds. Clicking the link will report all the spam seen so far.

anti-spam update, disable the 8 second spam report throttle. I *think* Blizz has finally fixed disconnects when reporting, let's test that theory.

    People complained and the addon got fixed and everyone lived happily ever after :)

    I had problems with 'Hide report' not working in latest version. However, after deleting Badboy and its CCleaner & Guilded addons, as well as all settings for those addons and then re installed from scratch, it started working again flawlessly.

    So when my guild mates whisper me links for stuff like logs or something I used to be able to open them since I have paste but now with badboy I get this error:

    Not that I can see. What chat addon are you using?

    PhanxChat

    Tested, seems to be working fine. Try with only BadBoy and PhanxChat enabled.

    It's working fine here.

  • #1144

    Even v12.805 has the horrid report link in chat when "Hide" is enabled. Looks like i'm gonna stick with v12.566 untill it gets sorted or someone comes up with an alternative.

    Don't fix if it's not broken.

  • #1145

    Hide links works fine for me.

  • #1134

    'hide the spam blocked message' still does not work, and I will never use it until it offers to report the reason I got the addon, to hide/report the guild spammers that use trade instead of guild recruiting resources.

    granted, i enjoy not seeing other spammers, but they dont nearly annoy me as much as the legit players that are too incompetent to use the proper methods.

    just gonna have to revert to older version

    Sounds like you should be using BadBoy_CCleaner for filtering without reporting.

    Looking into the issue of them not hiding in the latest.

  • #1143

    heh, at first i thought you were covertly calling me anal, but I didnt realize you could add your own words/phrases into cc_cleaner.  guilded has been working for my purposes to remove the guild spam from my eyes, was just hoping it would prompt reporting too, so people would eventually learn to use guild recruitment resources and I would need one less addon.
     there was just so many prompts to report, and none of them were what I initially wanted to report, so I just turned it off.  its a shame blizzard hasnt implemented anything theirselves for the illegitimate spammers, but thanks for your work.

  • #1142

    Still not really working but maybe the update hasen't gone out yet?
