Install the !StopTheSpam folder into "World Of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns"
just like you did for the hundreds of other addons that you have. If have
never installed any other addons, then I guess you really don't need this
one, mm? Make sure that the folder name retains the '!' character at the
beginning so that it loads before any of your other addons. There's
nothing to configure for this addon -- it just does its work silently
(after all, it has no choice). To disable it, go to the Character Select
screen, click on the AddOns button at the bottom, and uncheck "Stop The
Spam" in the list.

Oh, if you're an addon author and you're examining my code to get around
the filter (it really isn't hard), don't. Think of the users. If they
installed my addon, they probably installed it for a reason.

Release Notes:
--------------

2.00.11200 - Rewritten using Ace2 embedded libraries. AceHook-2.1 is
used to hook the chat frames, AceDebug-2.0 for debug messages, and
AceEvent-2.0 to stop the filter. Filter rules have been moved to
their own file. The rule for BugSack/BugGrabber has been rewritten
and re-enabled.

1.02.11200 - Ace2 and SCT filters removed. If you still see Ace2 addon
load spam update your addons to get the latest Ace2 embedded (or
standalone) libraries.

1.01.11200 - Updated interface version.

1.01.11100 - Removed the BugSack rule as it wasn't working reliably.
Added a rule to filter out DKPTable and the upcoming Ace2 version of
Scrolling Combat Text. Fixed a typo in the unload code. Minor change
to the filter code. Extended the amount of time the filter runs to
catch some really late loading addons. Updated interface version.

1.00.10900 - Filter routine rewritten to be more flexible to allow for
future expansion. Allow/deny rules are now supported, rules can be
reordered, expired, invalidated, disabled, and deleted. It's so
complicated that even I can't understand it anymore! BugSack and
Warmup are no longer filtered. Filter code now tries to safely unhook
itself if possible. Impact on the global namespace has been minimized
if not eliminated. Updated interface version. Also, the marketing
department says bigger version numbers are better. I agree.

0.05.1700 - Improved the filter routine to capture more of the spam
without triggering false positives. Added code to block AuctionIt and
the played time messages that get triggered by experience calculating
addons.

0.04.1700 - Fixed a bug that blocked more than just the spam after a user
interface reload. Added special case code to block the Ace loading
messages.

0.03.1700 - Another rewrite because I felt like it. No more icky timer.
Updated interface version.

0.02.1600 - Rewrite and general cleanup of code. Changed timer value to 3
seconds to catch ShardTracker. Updated interface version.

0.01.1500 - Initial release.
