You can't just ban the trolls because they spawn like mad.

They are so foul, and nobody can do anything about it besides this suggestion in title.

Free/trial accounts don't have the ability to talk in trade/general/any chat. The only way they can whisper you is if they are on your friends list.

You're seeing paying players, not trial accounts.

Um they are banned from chatting in any channels last i checked. The people spamming aren't on trial account they are on stolen accounts.

if you're talking about gold spammers, they use hacked accounts.

And you won't even be able to hear their "says" once you are over level 30 or so.

Certainly seems as if they have hamstringed new accounts with this setup where they can't say anything to anyone. I myself just started a third account which currently is trial(yes I have 2 paid accounts) Truly seems odd especially if the trial account is attached to an account in "good standing" why should I not have the option to atleast offer assistance to players inquiring on quests or other such? What just because they have a paid account and my third isn't one I wouldn't have pertinent information for them? I do have to say if this was done to stop gold sellers or excessive spamming it was a very poor job and a quick fix for it. Perhaps if it went off of battle.net account and of course leaving the limitations of level 20 no more than x gold can't join guilds or buy from the ah, even if it wasn't tied to battle.net account(s) at least even new players would have the opportunity to experience more of WOW than just the excessively watered down version that is currently available for trial accounts.

Trial accounts can't access general or trade chat, neither can they whisper you.
