    I didn't see that quote anywhere, only 1 about a very vague 'enforcing' with no definition of what 'spam' constitues and another saying that the rofc doesn't allow spam and that anet will be taking action.

    I assume block means muting from all chat.

    What if they LFG? So basically, they being locked out from a group.

    use the search or trade channel

    Also, I still really don't know why people complain about all the WTS / WTB spam in local chat.

    because it's excessive bs

    For the most part, its limited to the first 2 districts in the main cities (Kamadan, Lion's Arch, Kaineng, etc). Just switch to another district if its too overwhelming for you.

    no, you move, or use the allocated channel, all chat is for general use, gee, even in the most populated towns

    o puleeeze, there is no town that goes untouched with spam, and again, use the trade chat or search box

    If someone is spamming LFG hard, I wouldn't invite them anyway.

    well jciardha just to inform you we have had our differences and problems but thats nothing to do with forums thats an issue in game which is over a year ago. one thing for certain i would not lie about gaile saying something, and then even think of posting it on forum. on that subject thats all im going to say.

    but as you can see someone did kindley put a log up and at the very end of log before she talks about conga you would notice what i said is true.

    it could be as simple as if the person says the same thing, or uses certain key words in multiple sentances, they simply cannot use local chat for the rest of the day.

    yeah freak out, the end of the world is comming, you cant spam normal chat :O

    1) Under no circumstances can player repeat same message twice in row. Having to come up with creative phrase each time stops around 95% of all spam, but doesn't hurt normal conversation.
    2) After each phrase is said, that phrase can't be said again for 30 seconds. This is to avoid two-phase spamming "spam A, spam B, spam A, spam B etc."
    3) There will be no additional limits to phrase typing frequency or copy-paste as these features are very prone to "overkill" mistakes. Copy-paste can also be used for useful information.
    4) Party search window character limit should be doubled or tripled, with whole text shown in pop-up when clicked, so that people can put persistent advertisements or LFGs there without unhealthy use acronyms.
    I can see people going:
    W T S yada yada yada
    W T S yada yada yada.
    W T S yada yada yada!
    W T S yada yada yada!!
    W T S yada yada yada!!!

    Yeah, there is a way around most ideas, and your first-third point has just such a flaw.

    As for your fourth point, I'm all for that, why did they have to make that box so huge, but put in such a pathetic limit on it anyway?

    There already IS actual conversation in towns! Just sit in Sunspear Sanctuary and listen to all the 7-year-old dis your mother, or discuss their sexual prowess, or any other player-hatin' going on!

    TBH, I PREFER the trade spam sometimes!!!

    I haven't read the text. But if they're going to be blocking/banning people who spam in local, then yes, the innocent will surely be punished.

    If only there were an auction house or mall (re: Kingdom Of Loathing -- best ingame marketplace in the world) so people wouldn't have to spam and spam and spam and spam and spam to sell their items.

    Items, which we've been told are now the alternative to solofarming. Loot nerf, by ANet's ideal, is an encouragement to sell items to other people instead of selling junk to merchants.

    Other people. Yes. And how do I reach those other people? Spam spam spam spam spam spam <blocked>.

    Thanks.
