Spammers are getting creative

Ok I know this does not directly have to do with the wow website, but I was uncertain what tag to put this under.

It seems spammers are getting more creative. They have hit my guilds' calender. I have captured a screen shot but it seems as if I cannot link it to the forums.
*correction it seems as if they got on my calender by a mass invite not a guild event*

As pathetic as it is there may have to be a report spam button on the guild calender.

the dialogue on the "event" was
Title: www.pvpbank.com
Classified as: Raid

Discription: www.pvpbank.com 1000000G = 130Usd {code : PVP } Delivery in 10min Cheapest item packages. Gear up to lvl522 Delivery in 3hrs

I am not the guild master I just noticed the you have been invited to an event thing on the calender, if there is not already I suggest having the guild master able to determine a set rank before one can post guild events.

*I have been spammed with this event on the 24 of EVERY MONTH IN 2013, I haven't even looked in 2014*
Or maybe there really has to be a report spam on guild events.

I have to congratulate the spammers on their persistence but this is getting really old

It's not a guild event invite, it just an event invite. If you go to the calendar and go to make an event you get 3 options "Create Event", "Create Guild Event" and "Create Guild Announcement".
They are using the create event option and probably sending them out to whoever is on in your guild at the time, you can invite anyone using that option guildie or not. On my server they just tend to invite anyone on at the time and not by guild. You can right click on the event and report user but that only gets rid that one invite. Personally I report one and then type the name of the sender into my ignore list, it gets rid of the rest and you won't get another one until they use a different toon to create it. Good luck fighting the spam!

I complained to blizz via a ticket and was told i should change my battle tag id.that that should help resolve the issue. I don't see why i need to change my id cause blizz allowed these harassment site to run freely.

I am starting to think blizz is backing the www.pvpbank.com website and the harassment it is giving everyone since they have refused to block this activity that is clearly not wanted.
