I just registered to that site, and reported a persistent spammer who phishes my own address as the sender, which makes it impossible to block him via regular means.

Anybody got any idea if reporting Spam to this site, or similar ones, is actually doing something, or is it a futile exercise?

I haven't dealt with them recently, but SpamCop is one of the more effective ways of dealing with spammers. A lot of ISP's use them and their blacklist as a resource.

Thanks for that, I guess I'll keep feeding them for a while then.
