No, it’s not a fact.

You quoted my comment “reporting does nothing” as terrible, terrible advice. I never gave “advice”. Advice is telling someone what to do as a recommended and that it’s up to them on what they do or not. I never, EVER said “never report them” I said “reporting does nothing” and it literally doesn’t. Blizzard’s support is almost entirely an automatic algorithm that a real person doesn’t act unless they have to. I find myself reporting the same bot for a week straight with new mail from them each day. I’m saying, as a fact. Reporting. Does. Nothing. Or would you like me to rephrase… Reporting has been doing nothing. All a bot needs to do is make a new account or alt and continue their harassing.

Yes. That is the official line, but it’s pretty much a CYA mission statement. Little more.

It takes an absurd number of reports to trigger the automatic system. To the point that they’re almost entirely ineffective. Which, given Activision’s essentially eliminated live GMs and automated everything to maximize profit… at least means there’s not many false positives (or any kind of positives).

And it doesn’t address a few basic issues. Such as why it doesn’t automatically delete a mail when you report it. Or at least leave it visible so you can delete it at the same time you report it. It just means you have to deal with it twice.

Secondly - and this a broader issue - why isn’t there a dedicated report option for RMT? Other MMOs have this. It helps narrow down reports for RMT and speed up the process of identifying bots and sellers.

I’m of the opinion that Activision simply doesn’t care. The bots aren’t impacting their bottom line enough to make it a priority, so they’ve automated as much as they can and use the sub fees from the bots themselves to offset (perhaps even exceed) most of the remaining costs of dealing with them. Practical, but annoying.

Quite frankly, the ignore list should be exempt from the usual #nochanges philosophy, as it doesn’t directly affect gameplay and is a big QoL issue. I think ignoring someone should ignore their entire account for your entire account. Instead you have to add them to ignore on each toon. It would also be nice to have features like being able to notate the reason for the ignore, as well as a temporary ignore feature that automatically expired (such as for trade spam/trolls).

It would also be nice to be notified if someone on your ignore is in your party. If I ignore someone for bein’ a jackass, I don’t want to tank for them later if we’re on different toons. There’s an addon that does this, but it’s greatly limited in what it can do. I dunno.

That is false.

This is also highly misinformed.

Except you cannot right click and report the mail spam!!! Come on Blizzard, you can do better than that

Just ignore Kumasama, seems to be a paid Blizz poster.

Not even kidding

Hey, why won’t you post on your main, dude?

Like here:

Why are you hiding behind a level 66 alt all the time telling other people who they should or shouldn’t ignore, huh?

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Caring about which character somebody else posts on :rofl:

Hey, when you said this:

I took your advice. I literally went up a flight of stairs like you said there were and I trained and whatever and came back here to tell you that you’re still incorrect when you say this:

Because of this:

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

So he is a paid Blizzard shill and he’s admitting it :rofl:

I noticed that, in previous threads, when people have argued with your Level 66 Alt, you sock-puppeted your main after someone spoke with you.

Like here:

Are you trying to give people the impression they’re talking to more than one person when it’s just you?

Stop derailing the thread. I have dozens of alts. I post on different ones. It means nothing.

We need to find a way to stop the mail spam!

This thread will tell you everything you need to know:

Also this:

And this:

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Wasting your own time looking through my old posts!

Stop stalking me! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

That post is over a year old. They still have not solved the issue. You cannot right click and ignore an email.

If it has been happening this long, I doubt they are going to do anything about it.

Again:

This is how they’ve explained it.

If you haven’t realized yet, Kumasama is an obvious Blizzard employee.

All he/she/it does is post pro Blizzard propaganda and troll anybody who says anything negative about Blizz.

Wonder if it’s just a really well written bot, the replies do seem to follow a pattern

Okay, Vorban’s sock puppet :+1:
