It is, at least to me, virtually IMPOSSIBLE to employ chat at ALL, due to the massive amounts of currency spamming that is happening.
It doesn't matter where I am, in spacedock or sector space, it is virtually nonstop.
I also can't seem to find any chat filters to handle this, even if poorly: perhaps I'm still too new (Lt 2), but I would have thought that the interface for chat filters would be a bit more readily apparent.
What controls are there, if any, to try and weed out this garbage? Anyone? I've thoroughly enjoyed the game so far, and it has performed very well - my only complaint is the complete and total lack of chat.
It hasn't been too bad for me but perhaps im on when gold sellers sleep, anyway if you think this is bad you should have seen ****... oh the nightmares still in my mind, it was seriously, non stop and i mean non stop gold spams, every micro second a new spammer would post in the general chat.
Sol and the sirius sector are te worst. Its not so bad outside of them, though some jerk sent me a tell for gold selling last night.
Last night I played about 2 hours on my klingon. No spam. Then I played with my girl about 3 hours on my Federation..... I got a personal message about every 20 minutes from a spammer. Obviously we know who the sheeple are buying this garbage from them. Ban all feds!!!!
