Default BadBoy: An extremely minimal spam blocker & reporter

When reporting spam please post entire lines

BadBoy - Having been quite happy to remove my spam addon after 2.1 I've been struggling to resist the urge to use one once again. I've slowly been getting annoyed with the increase in spam again, being a hater of only blocking spam and a heavy supporter of 'report the bastards' this addon will auto report as well as block.

Download on Curse


BadBoy history/description:
With the introduction of the Blizzard chat throttle added in WoW v4, BadBoy has removed the code for throttling chat and for filtering ASCII art. On top of that I'm hoping the floating spam bots have been fixed so I've removed the sleep emote filter.

BadBoy is now once again a nice and simple gold/hack/phishing/casino blocker & reporter. However I will adapt this addon if people find new ways to get past Blizzard's code.

Can I configure it?

Type /badboy ingame

What sets this aside from other spam blockers?

BadBoy was created with a focus on assisting Blizzard and the user with spam removal, whilst being a light and efficient addon.

Plugins

Whispers by level blocker BadBoy_Levels.
Anti anal/etc spam BadBoy_CCleaner.
Remove guild advertising BadBoy_Guilded.


Please post missed spam here

I've changed the addon to auto reporting so people can afk in peace whilst reporting.

I'm not sure what you mean by ''- Slight throttle increase'' in the latest release, but i noticed some weird castlag/chatlag when i tested for 5-10 minutes. I'm not blaming it on this addon though, really like the autoreporting feature.

Um, the throttle is the time between the first message and last message where a report is sent, this is to prevent you reporting the same guy 10 times because he spammed 10 times. The throttle was increased to 7 seconds. i.e. 1 report every 7 seconds.

Yeah it has nothing to do with casting.

Perhaps you could make it possible to add words to the blacklist from in game?

If not, I'd appreciate if you would add '<>' to the spamlist, as they've been spamming a lot on dragonmaw-eu.

Nah, I want to keep it simple, feel free to post here if it misses something. I added that to the blacklist.
