GoldSpamFilter
Version: 0.2
by: Fenn [More]
This is a simple gold spamm filter that blocks current gold spamm. I'm sure once i put this on they going to change their message.

Please note i did this mainly for my own goal, and it wasn't tested fully but it didn't break on me in 4h of gameplay and i didn't get any spamm during that period.

It's possible it blocks more then it needs too, but hey at least i'm not getting any spamm..

Please note: this mod is based on XTimeStamp code and WOW Badboy (well part of it).

If you want to update and continue this mod please go ahead and do so, this was release more to help community then anything else as several asked me

Enjoy

Note: I'm not going to update this anymore, even though it work i would suggest you guys use the SpamFilter addon instead which offer a more robust and long term solution.
v0.1 initial version
v0.2 updated to remove debug statement i had left there by mistake. and will now ignore case of word

Been using this since it came out - absolutely love it. I have noticed that the goldspammers have made a bit more of an effort to get their message across. Here is my current commonlist from the .lua if anyone is interested in a more current one. I also took out some of the words that seemed to be a bit too common in regular chat too.

local commonList = {
--English
"bonus",
"code",
"coupon",
"customer",
"deliver",
"discount",
"express",
"powerle?ve?l",
"promoti[on][gn]",
"reduced",
"rocket",
"sa[fl]e",
"service",
"stock",
"trusted",
"GOLDAH",
"MMOWIN",
"WWW.",
"g a m e i m",
"c0m",
"g0ld",
"g0|d",
"g0Id",
".com",
"*W*",
.com is up to you guys if you want to keep it or not.
To update, go to AddOns\GoldSpamFilter in your addons and edit the GoldSpamFilter.lua with a text editor (i would suggest notepad++ as it is free and good) Then just replace "local commonList = {" and the list of words below it with what I posted above.

Thanks again to everyone who got this addon rolling -- Original coders and code editors too!

I used your code as an example of how to write a chat handling addon. Thanks for making it easy to use!

Simply blocks messages that contain "Welcome"

So I noticed that this spam filter basically just blocks any messages that contain the word "Welcome," most likely due to how gold sellers love to use it in their spam, this only leads to one annoyance.. Whenever I am trying to Welcome new members to my guild, it blocks my messages and those of other members saying "Welcome." Possibility of altering the coding for this add-on to not affect guild/group chats?

Oh well..
well i did say i ripped off your code lol. sorry, was too lazy. i will fix that in next version. Was too annoyed by those gold spammer and yours was fastest way to get there
...so why not just use his plugin?
The Mod i copied to do this was XTimeStamp which basically added a timestamp before the chat. It was simple starting point to get this done. I never really intended to release this but because several people asked me i released it because gold spamm was horrible. I did mention that it was modified/copied from xtimestamp in description.

Couple hours after i released this SpamFilter was released. Which in my mind is definitely a better solution then mine. Mine was always meant to be temporary fix until something more permanent was released. All that mater to me is i was able to play for 8h without any gold spam
Thanks for the props Fenn! Just took a look at your filter 'cause I was curious how you were doing it. If you don't mind my asking, what are the return values doing in your handleChat function? Didn't realize the handle chat callback even processed return values.

No, its not one that was released for ESO, it was for another game. I think...

It's not a copy of "spamfilter" because that was released after this one.

Keyword for now. I will update it as we go, but figured it's a start. and i'm sure the someone will actually port BadBoy or something similar before too long.
Might consider doing repeats. It seems all them do 4+ Lines repeated. If you had that as an option that be amazing. That alone might cut most them without even needing filtering.

Some them are now doing things like VVWVV.lalala.C0M
