Remove BNet invite scanning. To my knowledge, Blizzard removed the ability to send messages along with friend invites in v6. Most likely due to abuse by spammers.

Implement (experimental) heuristic detection for illegal (cash) rbg/arena/boost spam, which should have been done a long time ago considering how large the list is now. I didn't think this was going to become the nuisance it did.

    Considering all the issues people are having with it (see comments), nope. I do not believe it would be worth my time.

  • #968

    Works fine for me, but okay - I understand you. Still thanks for helping us fight with spam ;)

  • #963

    Is there a setting you need for it to block Battle.net/realid invites? I've only ever seen it block one long ago but now it never seem's to work when I get a spam invite.

  • #964

    I can't really test this as I don't get them anymore. Is it not reporting them as soon as you receive them, or it's not reporting them when you log on, or both?

  • #965

    Both, Tho I don't get too many only like 1 a week.

     

  • #962

    I wanted to say thank you for the years you have made this addon. I remember the dark years when I would get multiple gold spam whispers daily. But that stopped when I learned of this addon during Wrath. - Again thanks

  • #960

    People spamming trade selling BG/Arena caps is getting as bad as gold seller spam used to be, any plans to block those?

  • #959

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Stay safe and have a good one.

    just want to say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! for creating & support of this addons, seems like a lot of efforts was done, works just perfect!
    on my server it's totally must have №1 thing, otherwise chat is absolute mess & useless.

    eh.. if only blizzard have it by default, that would be so great.

    v11.2 improves detection of fake RBG ads.

  • #955

    Is there any way possible that you can make it target Guild chat aswell.. Ive been looking for an addon to remove all that Gz, congrats crap spam.. and i havnt been able to find any at all.. so i thought id ask you if it was possible to to make this or the badboy_ccleaner able to target the guild aswell.. even if its normally off, then perhaps make it so that we can enable it.

    anyways, thx for a nice addon! :D

  • #956

    Not currently, maybe in the future.

  • #953

    Is there a way to make the Spam Blocked Click Here To Report do so automatically?

    I suspect if there was you'd have done it by now..curious though ;-)

  • #954

    Blizzard removed auto reporting quite some time ago.

  • #950

    Blizzard keeps freaking out about the addon attempting to do protected functions related to the world map and other things.  I'll see if I can get the .lua error for you on the ticket site.
