Abusive spamming

Post by howwitty »

Hi, this is a request for a new feature to mitigate spamming in game. Can <20 lines of code be added to the server chat to provide automated mute conditions for duplicate or similar messages? This could prevent abusive behavior. There already exists a mute command for observers, but as you may know, this does not apply to whispers. I know that spam filters can be easily implemented for messages sent within a certain timeframe. It seems like this is a very local issue, however today a player was using a script to append chat spam messages with 4 character hashes.

Automated mute conditions would not work well there.

For whispers you have :ignore.

Ok, friends list and ignore list seem to be mutually exclusive. Thanks.
