Thank god you mentioned BadBoy! I can't tell you how much nicer Trade is having installed that some months ago. In fact, I recommend it in Trade so much, people have accused me of being the author (don't I wish!). It's definitely a great addon!Another I would recommend:NoDuelSimple and extraordinarily easy to use. It auto-declines duels, and sends a configurable message to the would-be dueller (assuming they're on your faction).

I'm apparently in the minority, but I don't use chat addons because I believe in helping to create consequences for the (body part) (link) people. I've been told that if someone gets Report Spammed in Trade enough times, a GM will look at their flagged messages and perhaps get around to tossing out a ban if they've been bad enough. If you use an addon to hide those messages, the problem people don't get flagged, and there's no chance for a ban. Besides, once you start flagging, you usually find it's only 5-12 people linking Thunderfury over and over and over again. That said, gold spammers are amazingly annoying. Pity the Picolo no longer works on the website-spelling ones. :-(

@ Shadowind - I totally still report gold spammers but there are litterally hundreds of level 1 or 2 alts that people jump on just to be jerks on trade chat. It's not even that they are spamming but they are being rude and/or just talking smack after a city raid. Anyone that uses the word "rape" in trade chat or a whisper gets ignored by me. It's not nec. spam but I have the right to not have to listen to them.I agree that we should still do what we can to get the worst of them banned though. :)

@Shadowwind:BadBoy automatically flags someone for spam, it doesn't just ignore it.

The piccolo doesn't work any more? Dang it, I just farmed one *just* to annoy the spammers. What did they do to it?

@Bruce: If you're talking about the gold spammers, they created a fix that they're no longer affected by it.

Obviously, they use a hack to do those designs with the toons, so they just had to write some code into the hack to ignore the piccolo.

Automaton is a great little addon that does a lot of stupid little things. One of the settings (wuss) autodeclines duels, another (loner) autodeclines guild invites (very useful for the "sign my charter!" crowd).It also sells grey items whenever you hit a vendor, and repairs whenever you hit a repair guy.Great little addon.

The addon I like to use for rejecting duels is called MiscHelper. You can set it to do a lot of great things like auto-accepting loot/bop items, auto-accept "this item will be disenchanted" messages, sell greys, auto repair, and a passing on the bronze drake. Some others that I don't use are auto-accepting group invites or ports, or automatically greeding/de-ing blues and greens (useful if you don't care in the WOTLK era of purples). Also, BadBoy is awesome, and I have to recommend the levels addition that blocks people up to a certain level. For me, I had to keep raising it because spammers would level a little so they could pst me. It also blocks new DKs. (Who doesn't want to do that anyway? ;)
