I'm guessing you're talking about the "put spam in the description box" invites. I've only seen these in Diablo, are you getting them in WoW?

v10 changes:
  • Support for filtering the new D3 related gold/account spam.
  • Removed name from report link. (*see note below*)
  • Report link is now longer and easier to click.
  • Reporting is now like a game of whack-a-mole, the report link is removed from chat after being clicked.
  • Add support for BadBoy_History, a new BadBoy plugin for logging removed chat.
  • Fix a bug for popup users where the popup would not reset.
  • The time between clicking reports is now restricted to 4 seconds to try and prevent a Blizzard disconnect bug.
  • Improved goldspam filters.
Note: Some players would get confused when they saw genuine/real names in the message and not report the spam.
These genuine names are usually real Chinese item sellers or people spamming Casino/D3 related illegal advertising.
For people genuinely worried about what they are reporting, you can 1) Use the popup feature or 2) Use BadBoy_History

Do you think you could by any chance add an option to disable opening a whisper chat when clicking the name in the blocked spam message, and let the whole message trigger the report on click? I somehow always find myself clicking the name rather than 'Click to report'. Not a big deal, but hey.

I'm not sure why it's doing that, I very definitely updated on both my machines after you changed things to accomodate the reporting change. Further, I've seen no problems on either machine. I meant it as a compliment, because almost all of my other addons throw errors at least once in a while, and that was the first time I'd seen one here.

Sorry if I offended.

That's really the only reason the next version will have an option to hide it, with a massive block of text asking you not to do so

Imho you shouldn't allow hiding the message. It is not that intrusive.
I click it every single time to report those @#$!!**@#$

Why don't I "blackhole" it? See the 2nd sentence in my rant a few posts down. BadBoy was never designed with the intention of hiding spam, the reason I made it 4 years ago was to get it reported, clean up the realms and get the hacked accounts being used to spam shut down asap.

Turning a blind eye (a.k.a. hiding the spam) helps absolutely no one at all. Now I'm currently faced with the "moral" decision whether or not I should allow the message to be hidden.

As to your issue with character related spam, recent versions have made a few strides in improving protection against it, but if it really is coming up as question marks, it sounds more to me like Chinese symbols rather than the usual character replacement. Chinese gold spam isn't that uncommon, I believe you'll have to use a compatible font to read it though (and preferably, report it to me to fix it) :/

Afterall, if we're successfully blocking the spam client-side, why do we need to report it to Blizz? Out-of-sight, out-of-mind.

On a side note, gold sellers (and character services) are slipping through the filters by typing in English using foreign character sets. I can't copy and paste it but a lot of the time it looks like a series of questions marks overlapping each other before and after a description of what they're selling. Curious if anyone has seen this and if it's un-blockable. A lot of the time it's just garbage (i.e. like they're failing in there advertising and don't know it) and sometimes it is halfway legible.

It's a shame Blizz made this move, I will make a suggestion to bring the auto report feature back.

Thank you for your support of this addon, wouldn't be able to survive trade channel without it.

It will block the spam, but it won't report it. BadBoy will add a message to your chat with a link for you to click to report the player. I strongly encourage everyone to do so. I know it's annoying, but that's what Blizzard likes to do
