    So if I got a b-net request that had a note that said something like,  "Stone trade," would that get flagged as spam?

    I'm not sure why people are misunderstanding this. Do people saying "stone trade" in trade chat get flagged as spam? No. Like I already stated it uses the EXACT same mechanism to scan invite notes. It needs to be far more suspicous than that. If you're paranoid about this then you should be paranoid about chat scanning also which is the core of this addon.

    Keep in mind that invite reports are also logged by BadBoy_History.

    So if I got a b-net request that had a note that said something like,  "Stone trade," would that get flagged as spam?  Because that is the exact type of comment that I would expect to have in a legit request... and I auto-reject any requests that have no note at all unless I am expecting them.

    Actually, thinking about it, I would prefer to accept or reject b-net friend requests manually anyway since I don't get anywhere near as many as I do random spam whispers.  Would it be possible to disable this feature?

    BadBoy only checks pending BNet friends for spam when you log in, so it doesn't catch any you receive while online.

    Nope, it also registers the event. Is it not working for you?

    Seems to work now, thanks for the update.

    Twice I've received spam BNet invitations while online and they are only caught after I reload the ui, whatever event you're watching doesn't appear to be firing.

    I'll add some prints and if it happens again I'll have more information about why it's not catching them.


    Should be fixed in v12.1

    Is this addon can block certain players that i choose?

    I dont want to do /ignore b/c I dont want to someone talk things behind my back in trade, but i just dont want him whisper me 

    And Alos, can it work w/ WIM?
     

  • #985

    If you wish to ignore their whispers. Whats the deal with wanting to listen to them in other channels? Usually people wish to ignore things outright. IE in all chats. Though there may be a addon that will do that for you.

  • #983

    for some reason badboy isnt working i have badboy levels on 90 but people stil could whisper me?

  • #986

    Its because setting it to level 90 allows only those that are that level to whisper you. So you would still see whispers from level 90 players. If you wish to filter out all whispers set it to 91. Keep in mind I do believe you will still get whispers from friends and guildies, as you should. Just everyone else will be filtered.

    Not reporting a bug or anything, I just want to thank you for a great add0n and point out how awesome the "report spam" button in chat is. I use it all the time.

    I dont know if anyone else has experienced this, but now gold spammers are sending calendar invites to spam you. Has anyone else experienced this?
