DEVS - Gold Spam is out of control...
 
There is more gold spam in zone chat than there is player chat. I have 13 gold spam emails in my Cryptic account. Something needs to be done quick, this is not only horribly annoying, but how the hell are they getting in? Are there that many free accounts? I've resorted to turning Zone Chat off which doesn't help missions...

Cryptic has already replied a few times to threads like these indicating they have some things in the works "coming soon".

In the meantime though, while it is an annoyance, dealing with these spammers isn't too hard from a player perspective:

1) In zone chat, right click on the spammer's name and "report as spam". It will report them to Cryptic AND auto-add that account to your ignore list.

2) With emailed spam, in-game click the "report as spam" button, which will auto-add the person to your ignore list. The devs have indicated similar functionality will appear on the forums "soon".
