Re: Spamming private chat for a player to time out (exploit)

I think i know how to deal with spam in the matter of being annoying to victim, if there's a way, when a player starts spamming chat should warn the sender that he tries to send too many messages and it would be considered spam, then if he doesnt stop the server would cut him off the game. If only there is a way to detect if a player is repateadly trying to break the cooldown period and then kick him for that. To prevent from warning and kicking a player which just types fast this warning could appear after 50 attemts to spam for example. What do you think about that?

Manual ignore button/switch/command sounds like a better and more universal solution. So player can ignore anyones messages if they are offensive, not only spam attack ;-)

Easy enough solution for now is 500ms cooldown period. All other solutions are "hard" enough not to be implemented in RC5/Final without a proper testing ;)

It's just a bigger risk considering upcoming release, but later on - sure, why not :)
