    As of v11 BadBoy automatically blocks & reports invites from gold spammers (gold spam in the invite message). As Blizzard hasn't "protected" this function it can be done automatically by BadBoy.

    Just wanna say I like the idea of spam block but remove the report button because I just accidentally reported someone trying to whisper a friemd and I don't know about the rest of ya'll but I am not much of a fan of reporting. Thanks for breaking my perfect report record. Hope ya fix that.

  • #947

    Look at the options panel.

  • #944

    Haven't tried it yet :) But please add an option to hide duplicate messages in trade if there isn't already. And make a temporary "do not show duplicate message" in trade channel so the same identical message won't get shown again in at least another 1 or 2 minute(s). People on my server have a tendency to override eachothers "announcements" in trade.

  • #946

    Read the addon description at the top of the page.

  • #942

    One thing I miss, a silent mode and maybe not report spam, just remove it.

  • #943

    Did you actually look at the options panel?

    v10 changes:

    • Support for filtering the new D3 related gold/account spam.
    • Removed name from report link. (*see note below*)
    • Report link is now longer and easier to click.
    • Reporting is now like a game of whack-a-mole, the report link is removed from chat after being clicked.
    • Add support for BadBoy_History, a new BadBoy plugin for logging removed chat.
    • Fix a bug for popup users where the popup would not reset.
    • The time between clicking reports is now restricted to 4 seconds to try and prevent a Blizzard disconnect bug.
    • Improved goldspam filters.

    Note: Some players would get confused when they saw genuine/real names in the message and not report the spam. These genuine names are usually real Chinese item sellers or people spamming Casino/D3 related illegal advertising. For people genuinely worried about what they are reporting, you can 1) Use the popup feature or 2) Use BadBoy_History

    The only thing that leaves me not fully satisfied with this addon - is the fact that I can't see what I'm reporting for. I want to optionally (or always) see the text because of potential bugs in addon's weghting function.

    Maybe such feature already exists, and I just did not see it?

  • #938

    That's what the popup feature is for.

  • #936

    I'm not sure if this is a Blizzard bug or something else, but occasionly immediatly after reporting somebody I disconnect.

  • #939

    I believe this is a Blizzard issue with reporting too quickly between reports. Try wait 5 seconds between them.

  • #935

    Sent you a PM with garbage that's getting thru relating to D3 in WoW .

  • #932

    Why do we have to report the spam? in older versoins it would report for us.



  • #933

    I'm really shocked that people are only noticing this now. Blizzard removed auto reporting in 4.3.4
