Just like the botters you mentioned, we take reports concerning gold spam very seriously and are continuing to take steps to combat it. As long as you are taking the time to report and block these users, then you are helping us ensure that we’re aware of which players are attempting to abuse the friend request system so that we can investigate them and take action against them.
We’re always looking to improve your online experience, and that includes the reporting system. Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback!
I honestly have a hard time believing this is actually happening because I get so many friend requests from them. I have reported, reported, reported, reported and they keep coming.
I've actually started accepting their friend requests in the hopes that possibly it would slow down but that hasn't worked either.
I don't mind saying it. If you (Blizzard) really want to do something about the problem, you either aren't throwing enough resources at it or going about it the wrong way or both.
It's not the end of the world, but quit saying that it matters to you (Blizzard) if you (seemingly) aren't going to actually do anything about it.
Now if you are telling me that I would be getting like 500 requests a day and because of your efforts, I get 4, ok, good enough job.
