#1 - 2013/01/15 05:59:00 PMWe've recently seen a number of posts from players regarding friend invitation spam and how it's been affecting your online experience. We agree that it's an issue and have not only been looking at ways to improve the Friend Invitation system, but also how to handle all the existing spam.
To that end, going forward any outgoing friend requests from players who are reported for spamming invitations will be proactively deleted. While players may still receive some friend invitation spam here and there, this change should result in an overall decrease in the number of fraudulent friend requests that reach your Social Window. If you happen to receive a friend invitation that's spam, please continue to use the "Report Spam" option as normal so that our support staff can review the complaint.

I'm super hesitant to provide that information (given that those details could be used to abuse the system), but suffice it to say that there are checks and balances in place. Simply reporting another player for Friend Invitation spam does not mean that all their invitations will suddenly disappear.
Like I said:
