Spamming in the Civ4 BTS lobby
« on: November 27, 2011, 07:41:04 PM »
It is no news that your Russian hacker is spamming the lobby with Ads for his pirate Civ5 league.  While we have received help from [WIZ]Falcon that I am very grateful for, Falcon can only block Viktor when he is online and monitoring our lobby.

Viktor is now using a name with blank characters that makes it impossible to "ignore" him in the games lobby interface.  But you can still mute him in C4F, as C4F can still highlight the "blank" player and mute it.

You can get either the 2007 or 2009 version in our file server here

Note in Vista an Win7 you most likely will have to run C4F in Administrator mode for it to work.

Please encourage all players league or open to use this program.

To all mods in the civ 5 lobby, they may impersonate anyone, normally they start off their spam with a "......" with this click on their name and view aliases/recent names. If they are impersonating anyone you will know. Put this person on your block all communication list, so the next time they enter chat they are at the bottom of the of the chat in red. It is very difficult to ban, but it is possible. Please w/ everyone's help im sure we can stop all this BS spam.  :attack:
