Will there be an option to get the "old" ASCII art filter back, or at least disable it completely?
Because I don't want things filtered just because there are many exclamation/question marks.
I'm with this too. I haven't really seen any ASCII gold spam, so for me at least the previous functionality has been good. I didn't see anything but false positives (I call false positive anything that's coming from a real player) with the alpha I tried. I wouldn't want to miss some pug I'd be interested on my alt just because the person used 6 exclamation marks. Sure it's annoying but doesn't tell anything about the quality of the raid itself. Also I don't know if I could suggest everyone to use BadBoy (as I do now, it's great:)) if it meant I also had to mention that some valid messages would get filtered.
I saw your response to cremor's message but I was wondering if disabling the ASCII filter would make it worse than what we have now in the release version or if it would be the same as before?
