No, this addon is too small to use the Ace framework.

I love this thing.

I think my guild and I must've gone through a bunch of mods before we settled on this one, and it's the most effective. In fact, we dedicated most of a day to testing out a bunch of such, and BadBoy came out on top (by far).

Those spam messages are so stunningly annoying, we had to do something to get rid of them. It's so very tiring that these... entrepreneurs don't realise that most players are too smart to want their dirty money.

No need to panic, the person you reported IS the person that got reported, BUT the person in the (brackets) is the last person that got reported by the addon, as that was when the global notice last changed. This is unfixable currently due to latency with reporting a player.

You can test this by reporting someone without the addon, it will show "Complaint Registered" with no name, as the (brackets) are a feature of the addon, just not a perfect feature.
Could just remove the feature if its not working right, to avoid alarming folks. TBH, I wouldn't have noticed the difference until I read this. Personally speaking, I could care less if their name is displayed or not... they're squelched and reported either way.
