I've recently found a way to discourage gold-spammers around the mailboxes that have gotten them to log off within just a few minutes. I've created a macro that fires off 5-6 emotes in a row. I target the spammer or simply anyone else in the area and fire off my AntiSpam macro and it quickly removes the spammer text with emotes from my toon. The gold spammers message is quickly removed from most players text windows and can be fired off immediately as soon as they send it off again. I've not gotten any complaints from other players (so far) but it seems to discourage the goldspam. After about 4 to 5 attempts to spam and being quickly overwritten by emotes, they log off. Seems to work. I use it when I log onto my bank alt around the mailbox. If they are spamming gold ads then I spam my emotes to cover up their message. Is this simply adding to the problem or is it more of a public service to get their spam scrolled off the chat window?/point/laugh/burp/cheer/openfire/dance

You're probably preventing some people to actually read their spam but that's about it.Those are spambots. They are made to go from point A to point B, say their stuff and log. Nothing you'll do will change this. You can yell at them, spam them, they will do what they are programmed to do.
