A spammer may refer to any of the following:

1. A spammer is a person who sends spam e-mails to someone else. It is common for the spammer to send the same or similar e-mail to a list of recipients multiple times over several days or weeks.

2. In computer games, a spammer is a person that sends an excessive number of messages to a zone-wide or global chat channel during a short period. These messages are usually to sell an in-game item or recruit players to join their group or party.


All online games with chat can also ignore anyone. For example, if the players name was "troll" the chat may support the ability to type "/ignore troll" to ignore that user. Alternatively try clicking or right-clicking the name to see available settings.
