Like add the link to the 'banned words list' or something?

These after battle messages trying to get players to click a virus-website link have got to go.

Thanks for the warning. I would at least submit a ticket and maybe they can ban the person. Personally I think name and shame should not apply in cases like this - it’s not like we are talking about someone being bad at tanks, they’re actively trying to harm people’s computers/accounts.

Yea best thing to do is send it to support and we'll do an investigation.  Spamming ads is pretty much an instant perma ban

Yeah I get these too.  I've reported these via tickets.

 

Unfortunately I think innocent people are ending up with their accounts banned.  I assume people that want gold put their account details in and the spammer starts using their (innocent person's) account to spam others.  When the ban comes the innocent player is screwed while the spammer just switches to another account.

 

I think the best way to deal with this is as OP suggests: scrub that domain from any messages players send to each other.

Hacked PC / WG client  - the account holder is likely not even aware.

Good point. Thought about this later in the day. More complicated issue than it seemed at first. Almost like a botnet pyramid scheme.
