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.

    Is it possible to make this addon global?

    So everyone can report spammers even if they are not in citys?

    Example: if someone in SW and im in outland and he caught a spammer in /trade, it will send me the name so i can report him too :)

    Spammer will get mute asap!

    This idea will make the addon the best! and it has many users :D

  • #931

    No, they wouldn't be eligable for reporting for those people not seeing the message.

  • #927

    I would like to be able to check BadBoy's flagged chat messages whether they are actually gold-spamming material. I have sometimes seen the addon flag people with "normal" names next to those with Adsafsag.

    It would be nice if it was possible to view the flagged message in question.

  • #928

    It's quite common for Chinese sellers to use standard names when trying to sell illegal items such as the BoP touring rocket or game cards. They even disguise their ads by mixing them in with words that seem genuine like "wts arena boost" followed by "also 1=10k" or something similar.

    You can check messages by enabling the popup feature in the options.

  • #929

    Thanks!

  • #926

    This was part of an add on compilation I downloaded to try out.  The UI was underwhelming, but this add on is a permanent favorite.  Thank you!

     

  • #923

    Is there any chance of you putting in a filter for  [Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]? It's annoying as hell, but the BadBoy CCleaner addition to BadBoy will not filter it out.

  • #924

    Are you trying to add the entire item to ccleaner? Try just adding "thunderfury".

  • #920

    I want to ask why did this become from Automatic Report to Manual Report now?

  • #921

    Blizz removed auto reporting in 4.3.4

  • #919

    Anyone else but me, that get DC when click to report?

  • #934

    I got the same issue, and talked about it with a GM. He told me that it was not Blizz' fault (after he informed himself about this). Great addon, too bad of the dc's sometimes.

  • #925

    Yes, but don't blame the addon.  It is a bug in Blizzard's reporting system.  You randomly get dc'd when reporting.  Please open tickets and post on battle.net forums so Blizzard fixes it.

    Me. Either on first or second report.

  • #917

    I've shortened the report message down to 1 line in the latest version to make it less intrusive.
