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

    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.

  • #951

    Thanks for the report, but investigating it is unnecessary. That particular taint is nothing to do with BadBoy, it's just bad Blizzard code and the broken taint system blaming BadBoy. Disable it and it will blame something else, and something else, etc.

  • #952

    It seems very insistent that it's Badboy levels - yes, it's Blizzard's fault but is there any way to work around it?

    Hi there can i know why badboy is trying to make some action while im pressing "yes" on resset talents? game block this try and makes me unable to change my tallents till i turn off badboy?!

    any help? or equvalent of this addon working without problems like this major issue?

  • #948

    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.
