If I were to edit this post, it woudl say at the bottom: post edited by pulserazor#0000 (not really my number) - and every spammer out there would have another person to put on their list. Think about it.
The social aspect of this game was ruined from day 1, and it would have been so simple to fix.
Spamming is well within your power to prevent. There are many games out there who do a fine job at it.
One of the most 'popular threads' at this very moment is 6 hours old, containing 18 pages of bumps minutes apart from the same gold spammer.
You do NOTHING to clean this up, this is why Blizzard community fails.
It isnt just Diablo 3. I played WoW for years and saw the same gold spammer on my realm every single day, I reported him so many times I decided that Blizz gets a kickback from third party sites, or they arent really third party at all.
I am Very relieved to see this thread, you've not idea! I have a good 32 real id players on my ignore list, before they literally would send me 2-4 friend requests a day if not more.
It's wonderful to know the staff are doing something to address this irritating issue or at least just lower the amount of spam we'll receive via friend requests.
Thank You So Much and Good Luck!
first 5 words of spam friend request says all.
thats all they have to check.

Is it possible for anyone to send a friend request without logging in to play?
Is it possible for anyone to send a friend request to you even though the player is already in your friend list?
I keep getting friend request from various players advertising diablo3walmart.com. One day I decided to accept one of the players ggwansuio1#13324. The strangest thing is I just got two friend requests from this player today even though:
1. he/she is already in my friend list
2. he/she hasn't logged in for 15 days and 22 hours.
How is this possible? Blizzard please ban this account if such things are not possible and this player has tweaked your system in order to send such annoying friend requests.
Please refrain from being such an idiot. You obvioulsy don't know who Sixen is...
To be on the thread subject: playing hc, I never get those "spam" messages. Hurray for hc !!
Hello, i have a problem.
i misclicked and had one of these in my friendlist for some seconds. I instantly removed him and reported him as spammer. I hope i don`t get banned. Im a little scared right now, I always played correctly and don`t want to get banned for a misclick. And my blocklist is full, please expand it, went pretty quick.
