  • Identifies spam even if it's split over several messages.
  • Optionally ignores whispers from people below a set level.
  • Can run in silent mode so you are not disturbed by spam at all.

  • Compatible with ChatSounds

WotLK Features

SpamMeNot is being completely rewritten for the Wrath of the Lich King Expansion.

  • Configurable spam score level means you can tighten up the spam detection or relax it as you desire.
  • The level it auto-reports at is also configurable.
  • Monitors the trade channel for people linking an exceptional amount of spell links as well as keywords such as "An*l" and "Dirge" and will flag and auto-report participants of mass trade spam.
  • 3rd party AddOns can ask SpamMeNot to filter their events via it's API.
  • Nicer configuration interface.
  • Much more organized internal structure.
  • Less chance of causing code taints.
  • Uses Ace3.

    an update would be way great ...even if you're still not playing ;-)

    Suggestuion: A opportunity to store spammers in the chat channel by yourself would be way helpfull especially for the loca users...

    rightklick on a Spammer in the chat and a subcategorie like " Add to SMN Blacklist... " or something else!!

    PLEASE, there's got to be something you can do to fix the cross-realm bug. Just make it ignore all rules and let through anyone that whispers you from another server. This is only going to happen in a random or a BG anyway. idk why it keeps blocking everyone who whispers from another server, but I believe it thinks they are level 0 or 1. If you can correct this one thing it will help so much. There are no other anti-spam adds out there that actually work. I have tried them all. This one bug fix is all we need. Thank you

    I have been using for a long time and have always loved it until recently. It has gone down hill to the point of having to decide which is the lesser of the evils, the spammers, or spammenot. It was blocking mostly people in cross-realm chats from dungeon finder, but now I had it block a private chat with someone on my own server. She was an 80, and nothing was ever said to trigger it. I went in all 3 times it blocked her and told it that she was ok, but again, it kept blocking her. She never mentioned gold or money, or anything bad. One of the times it blocked her, she simply answered "yes" to a question. I guess "yes" is spam?!?!? Too bad there's not a filter to say "never block anyone above level 'x'", because let's face it, gold sellers aren't going to have an 80, they for the most part will be under 10 or 55. Anything else and they get kicked by Blizz too fast. Anyway, if this could be done easily, it would fix the problem. Other than that, I have relied on it and loved it for a very long time. Idk why it has so many problems lately.

    I've still not really played WoW since the expansion but I decided to update SpamMeNot anyway since people keep asking me about it.

    Sorry but I no longer enjoy WoW. I could write an essay as to why but it's not really relevant here. I've not logged in, in a long time and no longer have a subscription so I'm abandoning the project so that someone with more motivation than me can maintain it.
