Prat 3.0

581 - Spam filtering

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Use Prat Normally
2. See trade chat spammers repeating the same message 2-4+ times
3. Get annoyed at the spam scrolliing

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would like to have an option to filter channels where repeated text could be removed/hidden from the output.
Example:
[22:37:52] [2] [Spammer]: NEED PALLY OR PRIEST FOR META LK ACHIEVE PST ME WILL PAY U GOLD!
[22:37:53] [2] [Spammer]: NEED PALLY OR PRIEST FOR META LK ACHIEVE PST ME WILL PAY U GOLD!
[22:37:54] [2] [Spammer]: NEED PALLY OR PRIEST FOR META LK ACHIEVE PST ME WILL PAY U GOLD!

What I'd like to see - a single line with some indication that the message was repeated x number of times.:
[22:37:54] [2] [Spammer]: [x3] NEED PALLY OR PRIEST FOR META LK ACHIEVE PST ME WILL PAY U GOLD!

This module would allow filtering time adjustments from 2-5 seconds. I understand this would cause some delays in the display of text, but only by that buffer time.

What version of the product are you using?
Latest Alpha on Curse

*IMPORTANT* -> Can you reproduce the problem when ONLY Prat is running?
Yes

Do you play on US or EU. What language do you use?
US English

Do you have an error log of what happened?
