I've noticed in General Chat, as well, my mailbox a ton of more gold spamming going on. Right after Bioware announces how well a job they did toning it down.

I'll just keep reporting them (which seems to be the equivalent of throwing a piece of trash away) and adding them to my ignore list, which is already full, so I'll have to make room for the newest gold spammers.

Honestly, can't understand why Bioware doesn't have someone log on to the game daily, at random times, just for an hour or hell, a half hour and when they see the spammers advertising, ban them right that second. It's not that hard. Hell, people have volunteered to do it for free.

They'll hopefully go quiet soon.

I've seen Gold sellers sending in game mail as well on both SF and SS.

The sellers spamming on the starter worlds has disappeared at least from what I've seen.

That’s what happens when you add a new credit sink or wanted item into the game that’s going to cost a fortune.
Aka, new augments coming will easily be 100mil each.

considering the effort required to get the mats...I can see it, especially when PVE players are forced into PVP and vice-versa

I've noticed the return of the gold spammers in gen chat for the past two weeks or so. I figured either BW stopped whatever they did did before, or the gold spammers found a way to get around BW's efforts. I've seen the gold spammers back on starter worlds and Fleet, and I'm back to getting some gold spammer ingame mail. Not at the rate they were before on starter worlds, where gold spam dominated gen chat, but they are back. I've seen this on both NA servers.

I'm on Satele Shan.

What's worse is you report and ignore them on one character. Then log onto another character and have to do it all over again.

WHY CAN'T WE HAVE LEGACY IGNORE?

I know there introducing a new feature that ignores all the accounts attached to the one particular spammer and I think they're calling it Legacy ignore but that's not what we want. We want to be able to ignore once and have that ignore apply to all our characters.

they've just said legacy ignore, but we have asked if it's legacy to legacy ignore....if that makes sense, ie all your legacy ignores that legacy. Not sure if that has been answered yet
