@ Chilblain:I'm thankful to know that there's at least one other person out there who knows how to keep a cool head.If you see a message you don't want to bother with, you don't do anything about it. /ignore or swearing back at the spammers is useless since the character probably won't last much longer than an hour if it's a gold/peon bot. And if it's an actual player, pop them on ignore for a day or two and then remove them. When, if ever, has a beggar spent more than a day spamming a chat line before being silenced/embarrassed?For me, a spam tell is little more than a blip on the radar that breaks up the monotomy or familiarity of whatever it is I'm doing at that point. So, I get a little bit of a wake-up call, which will probably help me re-focus if my attention is dissipating, and they fail to gain the attention they're looking for. A gain for me, and a well-deserved loss for them.I will never understand the mentality of those who try to shout louder than the spammers. On or off the Internet, if you have no attention on you, then you have no power. Of course, you'll never be able to tell everyone that. Let them pass the aggro ball back and forth between each other, and get on with the game.
