The government has launched a mobile spam reporting service, giving you the opportunity to dob in dodgy nightclubs, restaurants, electricians and ringtone providers (and more).

Tired of getting SMS spam? If a new system on trial overseas is adopted globally you'll be able to report spam to a global clearinghouse simply by sending an SMS, and then have your mobile network operator block such messages.
Quick question: Is there an effective way in place to report users rather than just simply reporting their posts? It seems that often these spam posters will come in and flood several subforums with spam, and rather than reporting each individual post (which I sort of remember mods saying somewhere was less than ideal for them), it might be better to be able to report a spam poster.
I don't know if this is the correct forum to post this, but:
Every webmail service that I have found so far has an embedded spam filtering service that can't be turned off. There are usually workarounds, but for every service except gmail, they destroy my ability to do manual filtering for non-spam-prevention purposes.
