Breakfast Topic: Are you a Trade Chat grammar narc? {WoW}

Dec 14th 2008 9:05AM This is pretty much the norm on my server. (Thunderhorn, EU)

There's some excuses for bad grammar, spelling and so on: Dyslexia, English being people's second or third language (Especially here in europe), and so on. There is, however, a huge gap between people with these sort of issues and those who simply can't bother to try. Trying to teach people by correcting them on trade is pretty much like trying to stop a locust swarm by using a flyswatter.

What bugs me more about trade chat, however, is the continuous stream of jokes (and that's stretching the term a lot), insults and general idiocy, and that has me reporting people for spam right and left at times. "Anal ", Dirge-spam or other memes that pops up from time often makes /2 pretty much unusable.

I've actually toyed with the idea of making an addon that keeps count of the number of people I've reported for spam over time. Which brings me to a few related questions: For how long will someone you've reported for spam remain ignored? And are there any limitations to how long this list can be? And most importantly: Can being reported for spam actually have consequences for normal players?
