Auto Silence Spammers

This should be a safe, in game automatic feature to diminish the negative impact of bots on player experience. Someone who repeats the same message again and again and again and again, especially if using that shout which makes that bang noise, should be auto silenced in game for an hour or 2. maybe even flag them for GM investigation to discover if indeed they are a bot to be removed.

that will be a problem with the auto-chat that also does the same

Auto chat is annoying but it's not spamming the same thing again and again- and if it does it shouldn't.

auto chat sends the message depending of the action is being made so it will spam the same message if the same action is being repeated over and over like when people are getting their loot

Well as much as I hate that feature, suppose we make an exception for stuff that happens in combat, that way it will silence bots who spam their scam links, and not people in missions.

The scam bot spam needs a way to controll it, since it extremlt annoying.

At least the auto-chat system is controllable based on how players set each trigger.

I still think a word filter set by the player itself is a better option since the restrictiveness of said auto silence lies on the player and not on the system (Make it so that a message doesnt appear when the player sets the word/string "psoah" as a message filter or whatever).
