I see more "click my referral link " spammers than I do any other spammers and those I know have to be subscribers due to the amount they are "offering" for a sub to click their link and second only subscribers (as far as I know) have referral links so it is not just the F2P that spams.

they could allow some vetted player's to mute the spam accounts for 12 or so hours, easiest way would be be web page with need for attached screenshots of the spam before it was issued. and of course severe penalty's for false reports ...

In a manner of speaking, this already exists and has for some time (and has allegedly been abused repeatedly). If a single name receives enough spam reports in a given period of time it is squelched for 24 hours.

I am sick and tired of spammers.They are everywhere.
Korriban,Fleet,Dromuund e.t.c
Make moderators ban them.
Moderators....

hahahahaa haahahhaaa

Funny joke. I don't believe for one minute they have moderators checking the handful of servers that are left. They only go by reports and react only when there's enough reports. I can't prove it of course but I've seen zero evidence of them actually having moderators that intervene on the live servers.

How about you use your head and start checking the level of some of the spammers. They are not level 25. They are level 1 on the starter worlds. F2P do not get sub time for using a referral link. F2P can not use chat (even group, whisper, or guild chat) at level 1. F2P can not send credits by mail. So how are the gold spammers F2P? You don't even know the limits on F2P accounts and yet you're willing to apply a needlessly punitive and completely ineffective restriction to them because you're absolutely certain the spammers are F2P when the current limits on F2P accounts make it impossible for them to be spammers.
the sellers (sub accounts that hold the credits) themselves aren't f2p man as they have to have no credit limit to send the users their credits. I never said f2p could do any of the things you suggested. I know the limits I was F2P and preferred before . I'll have to check your theory that they aren't lvl 25.. I got no proof on that yet. . I doubt the actual general chat spammers are all subscribers, they'd just lose too much money and stored credits. Doesn't make any sense business-wise unless there are a ton of people buying credits to make up for it, which is possible. The current limits arent impossible, what I said is true, in order to spam in general chat all you have to do is get to lvl 25.. which can be done very quickly now in this game lol.

yeah this is possible but.. they could also be using customers subscriber accounts from their powerleveling services to spam.

What are you even talking about?

I sat on the fleet long enough to get marked AFK twice and didn't see a single gold spammer. There were a few referral link spammers, but those must be subbed. I went to Tython. Before I even loaded in a gold spammer had posted twice; 10sec apart, which is faster than F2P can post to general chat. Before I had even been marked AFK once they had posted over 10 times. Off to Ord Mantel and the same thing. Both of those characters were level 1 so absolutely, positively not F2P.

But even with all this evidence staring you in the face, evidence that is so easily verified, you continue to want to blame and punish F2P players for something they can not do. Why are you so intent that it's F2P'ers doing this? Why are you so intent on punishing them with punitive action for things they're not doing? What is your problem with F2P players?

A lot of the time, there are more than 1 spammer, who's names can be nearly alike. Not saying this was the case with what you've seen, just saying from personal experience i've noticed this. There are definately more spammers on starter worlds, but fleet gets them a lot too.
No Idea if people use these, but if so, here's my referral link

I block multiple credit spammer accounts daily when I'm on the fleet, the spammers are really on every planet that has decent population including going back to the starter planets (you act like they can't lvl up on these starter planets or can't go back to them to spam). Listen man I'm not saying you're wrong man but I remember before there was lvl 25 restrictions on f2p to type in general chat, and the game was absolutely rampant with credit spammers.. once they put the restrictions in , it cleared up general chat a lot. it's not f2p players doing this, and i'm not blaming them, all the blame is on the gold sellers and people that buy from them making there be a need for restrictions on f2p unfortunately. You act like I want to harm f2p players and I don't, like I said I've been one of them. I'm about to head to a starter planet now and check it out for myself and see what level they are. Again i'm not saying its not possible for a subscriber to also be a spammer, but I'm saying there are probably a lot more f2p accounts spamming that way the gold sellers don't lose too much money. And I'm not saying it will completely remove the problem if f2p can't type in general, but I think it will help out a lot. Also the gold sellers would have to give bioware more money each time they get banned from general chat and the game. Bioware and 99% of other mmo's put this same kind of f2p policy lvl chat restrictions in place, just for the fact to combat gold seller spam and you act as if there is no causation or correlation.. come on.

Also in response to your quote of me, "what are you even talking about". I'm talking about on the credit sellers website they also do power leveling, which means... the customer gives the credit seller their personal swtor account information and it has to be an active subscriber. so with this customers active subscriber account they are power leveling, they then in turn use this customers account to spam their credit seller links with a newly created character from this customers active subscription. Does that make sense? It would help your cause that not all gold spammers are f2p accounts.
