We've had a response back from the developers regarding this as follows: "Messages app doesn't support blocked phrases anymore for a few reasons: it supports “Blocked numbers” (it's the main blocking function), there were many usability issues with blocked phrases (unlike user's intention, non-spam messages were blocked and not received) and in the case of recent spam messages, it is difficult to block by just one keyword. Also, the utilization rate was pretty low, so there are no plans to bring this function back." Thanks for the suggestion, @TL3 and keep them coming. Sorry, but this doesn't make sense... If you receive a spam without a number, there is literally no solution to block this now. NONE. They got rid of a key function without providing a solution. If it was for liability reasons, they should make that very clear so that people can focus their fight against spammers and carriers.
