What the f is that stupid reply?
I'm already 80 on all classes and have units for each type of atk and have a tank set too. Already done gathering and dailies on main and 2 alt characters.
I'm just sitting in lobby while I feed exp eggs to my pets.
Maybe you still have stuff to do so you can suggest dumb ideas like "deal with it" but for people who know what they're doing, we've essentially already done everything in the game and are just waiting for the hero release.
Microsoft managed to put a "view gamercard" option on the character medu display.
Putting a "mute" option shouldnt be that hard
Somehow "don't stand there" became "you don't know what you're doing." You're the one choosing to hang around where bots tend to pop up, so yes, move or deal with it.

"You shouldn't play the way you want to play, you need to play my way. It isn't the game's fault. It is your fault. The game is perfect. You are the wrong one here."
Almost. You don't need to play my way, and the game isn't perfect.
But otherwise, yes. Blacklisting isn't going to help, since infinite accounts and characters can be generated to spam all day long. Bots like this have existed in every game, and no one can truly get rid of them. It is indeed your fault if you sit around where they spam, because you can move out of range of their messages or go somewhere else.
Is this a problem? As stated, yes. It absolutely should not be the solution. Until a real fix comes out that magically does away with them forever, you either have to deal with it if you want to hang out where they are, or you can carry your butt to a different spot so you don't see the messages.
