Reducing Friend Invitation Spam

Apparently my block list is at capacity. I still receive spam requests when I log in. Usually variations of the same damn username. Are there any plans to increase the block list size?

Thanks! I haven't had a gold friend spam request in a while

it wont stop the spammers cause they are friend requesting from free accounts. No more friend request from the freebies, and delete the remaining spammers and problem solved. this has been suggested over and over again, yet ignored. I guess it would actually fix the problem and we wouldn't want that.

So all those times that I have reported spam friend invites, they are just now finally going to mean something. It's kind of hard not to be angry about this. I would like an explanation of why this took SO LONG. So basically we have had the feature of "Report Spam" just to make us feel better... to make us feel like surely Blizzard is paying attention.

After experiences like this one, I will probably wait a month or two before buying newly released Blizzard games and/or expansions.

Blizzard should literally do what this guy is saying. But who knows, maybe you poo poo that idea because it would mess with you earning money from people that convert from trail copies to retail copies. Doing such would just show what many people already suspect, the accountants' rule the land at Blizzard with an iron fist.

any outgoing friend requests from players who are reported for spamming invitations will be proactively deleted.

I'm guessing it'll be more than one report though, correct? Hopefully more than a handful? This can very easily be abused if it's not, :/.

You really think this would be a problem for normal people? Seriously, who goes around friend requesting people at random? ie. with a high chance of being refused / reported as spam.

I have recently noticed a significant drop in "gold farmer" spams in my friend requests.

Thank you :-)

How about a filter for outgoing friend requests that flag anything with www. Or http:// in the comment box?

This is a great idea.

Happened again today, declined the invitation and reported spam. I will continue to report here too as long as this is still happening. I wonder how many days I have to report before any action.

how about no more than one invite per game you join (since we can see who we played with already in the list) and no more than five known battle tag invites per day. its a friend list, not an everyone i just met list.

Blizzard can do much much more to stop spam, they just wont.

Whitelist is the best way to go

is it possible to have a block folder like they did in d2, where you can add certain words to the folder like gold, www. .com .net .org ect.....
