Group Chat AntiSpam device updated: allowed words added

SmartBots Group Chat AntiSpam device has been updated. The new config directive has been added: “WHITE WORDS”.

This directive allows some words to be told on group chat. Imagine that you want to protect your Second Life group against spammers, and forbid them to send URLs and SLURLs. You add the following directive to config notecard:

STOPWORDS = http://

This blocks spammers from sending URLs and SLURLs. But what about your own customers and support? Sometimes they need to say your business SLURL to the chat. Add the new directive

WHITE WORDS = secondlife/My%Region%Name/

and all messages containing this string will be considered safe.

You can get the new updated AntiSpam device at SL Marketplace for free.


Anti-Spam improved: white-list avatars added

SmartBots Anti-Spam device has been improved: the new WHITE LIST directive has been added to the config notecard.

This directive allows to specify the avatars you trust (for example, managers or your Second Life bots). These avatars will be able to say anything, including the “forbidden” words.

What is Anti-Spam?

SmartBots Anti-Spam is a special device which monitors your group chat activity. You specify the list of forbidden words and phrases, and it ejects anyone who says them. It is possible to warn the abuser once before actually ejecting him from the group.

The device is available in SL Marketplace: get it here for free.

Updating existing Anti-Spam devices

Open your device’s config notecard and add one or more “WHITE LIST” lines at the end of the config. The avatar names should be separated by commas. Example:

WHITE LIST = Name1 Resident, Name2 Resident
WHITE LIST = Name3 Resident
