Chatter

19 - Filter repeating text

I generally don't mind the content of spam. What bothers me is its repetition, which makes it hard to find real chat in the chat window. So I'd like to see a filter that suppresses repeated lines from the same source within some recent time window. This would also eliminate repeated automated sales pitches in trade chat.

    Should be doable in a module, not sure how useful it would be. When I have time spare and am bored :D
