How to Annoy Gold Spammers and Obnoxious Players

Dear Gold Spammers,

Cut your shit.

Here I am, leveling my paladin in Borean Tundra, and I get 3 whispers from you assholes. THREE. That's within the span of an HOUR.

I had already made it clear I wasn't interested. That means that one is more than enough. I don't care if that's how you make your living. I am not going to spend MY hard-earned money working a REAL job on something that is likely to result in my characters being stripped, but my account BANNED. Also, I have an authenticator, so your devious ploys are futile.


That Priest

I actually normally run an addon that tends to confuse the hell out of spammers. I have to load it automatically though, since it's EXTREMELY out of date. It still works beautifully though.

Automatic Goblin Therapist is a relatively lightweight addon that adds people into its list when they whisper you. You can then move them into "surgery," which will prompt the addon to start replying to the other person. It's a whole lot of "tell me how you REALLY feel," which frustrates gold spammers and annoying players alike.

Just don't abuse it. I mean, you DO like your guild, don't you...?

Annoyance in moderation.
