Ok in most of Expert games we usually have 50+ spectators wanting to watch the game and comment it, which is a marvelous thing.

Thing is, when that one dude starts flooding the chat without any real intention. I think voobly should locate spam (Just by seeing three equal messages in a row) and muting for 5 minutes. Spectator chat will be much better after all this spammers and flooders stop doing this. Is this possible?

Indeed a good idea but up until it's implemented, feel free to seek assistance of a staff member (moderator or above) so they can kick the offender.

Nothing stops a player in-game from repeatedly spamming/taunting others aswell. Should they be muted, kicked, banned aswell?

Ask the host to go to spectator settings: select "Spectators cannot chat in game room"

You do not know, if **** does not get solved by it. You may have tested it with your ****, but to have a proper conclusion you need to put other's **** into the formula aswell, to properly solve it.

**** never gets solved cos the **** that needs doing doesn't get **** done about it. Whereas **** that needs doing requires people to get their **** together for the **** to work properly. Instead of the **** we have at the moment. **** situation until **** gets real. Which unfortunately won't happen as we're **** out of luck.

Spectators should not be allowed to chat at all in the game, in the game room or anywhere once the game has been launched. When spectating a game they should be locked at do not disturb. Not being able to chat anywhere at voobly. I would say also not using any other type of social chat.

All to often I have seen spectators giving their freinds information who are playing a game.

That will not do any good because The friends use that to send secret information that in the game would appear like for all the world no? ;stern
