    Will be fixed in v6 (next version). Unless you're talking about the spam that's already blocked which has several lines of "wts item". Nothing I can do about that - but the advert is removed/reported.
  • #616
    Yes the gold site is reported and blocked. But before that there is 3-4 lines ot WTS items witch are not blocked :(
  • #618
    Yeah, can't really block a statement like "WTS item". Hopefully they will stop soon when they realize they are being reported anyway, and that spamming WTS item doesn't disguise their advert at all.
  • #608
    Any chance of an update that automatically blocks and reports any post in the trade channel with the work "Anal" in it?
  • #609
    Get BadBoy_CCleaner.
  • #604
    With all the recent updates, this addon only works about half the time. I still get all the spam about "Free Mounts, go to our website" from level 1 characters.
  • #605
    And yes, I checked to make sure it was up to date before I posted. It blocked out the person right after, but not the spam about free mounts. I still get about 5-10 spams a day, all from level 1 characters.
  • #606
    That's quite disturbing to hear, phishing messages are somewhat trickier to block than gold spam unfortunately, and I'm sure the phishing database will soon surpass any other database.

    That being said, I've never had it as drastic as missing 5-10 whispers a day and it quite saddens me, could you possibly try PM me these whispers so I can do something about it?
  • #600
    hey i just wanted to say that some of them are using /4 now and alot of the raid icons to get by the addon
  • #601
    Raid icons have nothing to do with BadBoy, post _CCleaner issues on the _CCleaner page. Also, try post a little more detail than just "it doesn't work". /4 tells me nothing.
  • #603
    I think what he means is that there are gold sellers these days using raid icons to advertise there sites. These gold sellers aren't detected by the addon
  • #607
    The actual raid icons isn't what's throwing the addon off, it's the shorter messages since I made v5. My v5 plan lasted about a week before they changed up their act. I have something in the works to kill this new stuff off though, until I'm ready to release it I'll try keep up with this new stuff manually.
  • #610
    Ah, oke, great to hear :) Realy love the addon.

    By the way. On a smaller note, I tagged the "Hide 'Complaint Registered.' message", but still getting the report messages in the chat.
    Could be something on my side, but not sure.
  • #611
    You're not the first person to have this issue, I sent you a PM because I want to figure out what the issue is.
  • #599
    v5.2 adds support for BadBoy_CCleaner v3 and a config for BadBoy_Levels, aswell as the usual anti-spam update.
