WoW Spam

It's interesting how I take ad spam in WoW for granted these days.

Whether it's the floating orcs (as shown above) or everyone's buddy "Susan" in Trade Chat, I don't bat an eye.

Usually I take the time to click and report them for spam, but sometimes I don't even notice... and others, I just couldn't be bothered.

Sometimes I wonder, though... is everyone else as apathetic about it as me, or are there people out there who still care? Does Blizzard even care, or do they just mass ban the accounts that got reported and move on?

I am pretty good about right click, report spam but Its not anything to care about. A modern city dweller tends to be pretty good at mindlessly screening advertising and spam anyway.

Funny enough Horde side spammers stood out on a recent visit their as they have a different flavor to our (proudmoore) alliance counterparts.

I've been seeing the floating warlocks in Stormwind lately, but I ignore them for the most part.

It's very hard to tell if reporting spam has any effect, so I don't bother.

One amusing tip. Remember the most annoying trinket in the world, the Piccolo of the Flaming Fire, the thing that makes a harp sound and everyone nearby dances?

It has a use now. It disrupts the adds. Very nice.
