Good question, but the answer gets a little complicated. What most of you associate credit selling with are the in-game mail and messages that you receive. The spammers. That is only a part of the networks associated with credit sellers. Your question is actually related to the distributors. Those are the accounts which are holding, hiding, and constantly moving the credits, they are not the same as the spammers.

That being said, we aren't going to go into detail on the trillions of credits that we just took out of the game with this wave of action.

A trillion here, a trillion there...

No, wait, you were always talking about a large amount of credits.

The downside to this is, unfortunately, this almost certainly means that a certain amount of rare items went up in smoke with the banned accounts.

Why take a trillion when you can take, a billion?
Let's agree to never say "RNG is exciting" ever again.

Will (or does) this include a "Report Credit Seller" right click option, that auto ignores the credit seller (or associated account)? Will we also get an upgrade to our mailbox features at some point to only allow messages from Friends / Guildmates / GTN sales?

Those are frequently requested features that would go a long way to being able to impact directly on how these credit sellers try to communicate with the player base. Obviously a lot more goes on in the background, and it is appreciated, but by being able to silence them communicating would also send a strong message from players that want nothing to do with them.

Also, pass my thanks on to the team handling this, and thanks for updating us on the progress it is appreciated.
