    This mod has also stopped working for me recently.

    The spam (and similar) I Am trying to block : 

    "WTS????gold 300K=105$**instant trade**Heroic HFc full run with master lol" etc.  I think the text has some Non Latin Unicode characters imbedded in the spam, perhaps to get around this mod?  The "????" part of "WTS????gold" doesn't appear to be an ANSI question mark, but some unicode crap.

    Any advice appreciated!

    This dosent seem to block anything?


    I have added things like ROCKET GAMING, to stop one website spammer, and various of other words, no blocks?

  • #137

    This addon uses Lua pattern matching, so it'll be weird with entries that have more than one word in them. If you put rocket%sgaming as your entry (that's a % sign and the letter "s" instead of a space) it should match. If it doesn't, you can try using rocket.*gaming (a period followed by asterisk) but that will match any number of characters in the middle.

    Would there be a way to add an inverse toggle option to this addon?  In other words, an option that would make it so that all messages are blocked by default, and the only chat messages that are shown are the ones that contain a string from the user-input strings, rather than showing all by default and blocking the ones with a string from the list?

    From my limited programming background, it seems like this would be as simple as switching the variable from 0 to 1 and from 1 to 0, or calling function B and A instead of A and B.  

    I would give anything to be able to have all trade chat blocked except messages with "WTS", "WTB", "LFM", "LFG", "less than AH", "Felblight", etc. in them, because frankly it's not just the "anal" and "thunderfury" spam anymore that's ruining WoW's community, it's the constant stream of trolling about whatever the current celebrity/political news scandal of the day is.

    This seems to have stopped working for me, I checked and yes I have the addon enabled. What could be happening? thanks.

    Couldn't really say without more info. Have you tried with only badboy addons enabled?

    Just curious, does this allow me to filter addon messages that appear in chat, too?  Mostly the stuff that loads as soon as I log in to a character.

    Latest release now allows you to type in any character.

    is there a char used as a wildcard? if not this would be a useful option

  • #125

    Thank you very much for this.

  • #124

    Best addon there is. Hope you keep it updated.

  • #119

    Hey, thanks for the great add on!

    Is there anyway to add a guild chat/ raid chat/ party chat filter to this?  I have a disabled daughter, and I'm tired of seeing the words "retard", "huntard", "tard" etc.

    Would appreciate it extremely!



  • #123

    I too wish to filter out the versions of "retard" being thrown around guildchat and any groupchat.  It ruins my fun to realize how many of my guildmates are using that term to refer to anything the dont care for.  Many of us know cognitively impaired people and this use of an outdated medical term is offensive.  Ty to the op that brought this up.  I would donate to support this modification.ty

  • #121

    Yeah I second that request, lately a LOT of my guild members have been making these rediculous macros that take up nearly the whole 255 character limit along with raid icons JUST to say grats on EVERY achivement. [Can I Keep Him?] boom macro, [Level 10] boom macro, [You Logged Into WoW] boom macro . . . it has gotten to the point where I am starting to put people on ignore and I don't like having to do that just because they think it's important to interrupt a conversation with a macro a mile long and laced with eye jarring icons.
