The below comments have not yet directly affected my in game experience however I can see how it can.
I am quite confused why protocols are not being put in place to stop spam on the forums or even spam within the game.
Example: On the forums tonight when I log in, the top 2 trend topics in the forum are external companies selling gold... the same user account has spammed the topic Hundreds of times to get the threads to be the "most popular"
I was quite amazed to see that one of these threads has been active for 7 hours and the other for 12 hours.
I am also a little frustrated that every day when I log into D3 I get an D3 friend invite from a company selling gold.
I am well aware that people will always find ways to "spam" people for their own benefits however I believe the amount of spam we are receiving could be reduced.
for example I noticed the Spam accounts used for the Diablo 3 forums to sell gold were World of Warcraft accounts.
Could you limit people posting on the forums to people who have purchased Diablo 3 only?
Could you disable people who have a D3 trial accounts from requesting friend invitations to people who have purchased the game and still let people who have purchased the game invite people on trial accounts as friends?
The amount of spam that is visible, makes me think how much the in game AH is getting played...
As I said, I love this game and have followed it for the last 4+ years...
This all just seems like it could be avoided.
Let me know what you think, I am not trying to troll it is just something I have been thinking about for awhile.
