This behaviour is obviously very disruptive, and arguments such as "it gets rid of the silly people" simply aren't valid. Please feel free to report any player doing this that you see or fall victim to, and I would also encourage you to make your friends and guild mates aware of this type of trick.

Often it's as simple as remembering that system messages, the important ones you need to watch out for, are by default written in yellow, whereas emotes are not. :)
